As always, I hope this finds you all well and making the most of the late Summer early Autumn weather. Its been a cracking day for the Great North Run and I know we had quite a few Nidders taking part so well done everyone and I hope you enjoyed it.
Its not long now for our very own half marathon at Redcar. If you haven’t already done so please let Debbie Dilasser know your food choice and if you would like a first or second sitting. I’ll be at the race but spectating from the side lines, that said I’ll definitely be joining you for fish and chips.
Kevin Dalton will be sending out the newsletter this week so watch this space for a round up of results, possibly some funny anecdotes and some action photographs.
Thank you to Nadene for organising all the social pub runs over the summer and in particular last Tuesdays fish and chip run. I was sorry to have missed it.
On a personal note I would like to thank everyone for your birthday wishes yesterday and making the day a special one.
