Hope this finds you fit and healthy.
India was incredible and even more incredible was the fact that I wasn’t ill. No running to the loo but sadly no running at all so its back to it for me this week.
Thank you to Kevin for writing the weekly emails and producing the first of our monthly newsletters. Were keen to give this newsletter a name or a title so please email Kevin with your suggestions and we will have a club vote to decide.
