Taking a leaf from Rose-the-master-pacer's book, Emma S went head-to-head with the Manchester half marathon on Sunday (19th April) and came away with a new PB of 1:57:03, her first visit to the sub-2 hour club. Well done Emma, we look forward to sub-1:55!
On Wednesday 22nd April a few Go Veggie members made it to an evening 5K event hosted by Andems Runners. Andems' evening 5Ks are fantastically and enthusiastically organised by people who love running for its own sake, with no quarter given to gimmick or cynical financial gain. Andems are also very well connected; Dianne Modahl herself started Wednesday's epithetic race - a brutal multi-terrain affair involving an outrageously lung-popping uphill start offset to some degree by stunning Pennine views. Mick W was first Go Veggie home with a sub-20 minute top 10 overall finish, but all GVs that made it back alive thoroughly enjoyed it.
Take in an Andems event if you can. There's something very authentic about the whole experience.
