A quiet week for a change. Mike is still Coach and the MCs are Vanessa and Sue.
Tuesday brings the first Leisure Ctre League road race of the season to Chepstow, to be followed in the Leisure Centre Bar by the presentation of the trophies from the Cross-country season. Make sure you stay behind after the race to applaud all the teams and individuals - quite a few are Chep members - and tuck into the buffet, which we're all contributing to.
The race starts at 7.30 at the top of Hospital Hill so allow time to jog from the LC. All members are encouraged to run. Just wear your Club kit, run your hardest, and collect your finishing position card at the end. Hand this to your Captain or whoever is collecting them before you leave the finish area.
Thursday's run is up the Wye Valley Walk (remember we swapped the date of this from next Thursday in place of the last Club Handicap, now to be held on 30 May - details of which will be posted next week). The bluebells in the woods just after Eagles' Nest look particularly beautiful at the moment especially in contrast to the soft green of the new beech leaves.
