Nik Windle keeps going over weekend!

A double effort for me this weekend, didn’t win anything needless to say.

What was supposed to be a fast run at Abingdon park run on Saturday resulted in my second slowest attempt to date with a time of 24:12, I did place a bit higher than usual though so maybe it was just a slow day all round what with wet grass and slippery Thames Path. I wasn’t originally planning to do the Ridgeway Run the day after but entered on the line and enjoyed it all the more for taking it easy. I was wearing my VCAC vest and it was great to get a shout from one of the young ladies marshalling about a mile from the finish, “come on veggies – I’m in the Vegan Runners!”

Ed: It may have been Verna Burgess, a member of the organising club, Tring RC. I had originally planned to support the event but with the bi-annual local Animal Sanctuary Open Day in the opposite direction and relying on train & bike, I just cycled to the Animal Sanctuary later.
