Calling Waddettes!

A message from Ladies Captain, Rachel:

"Firstly, congratulations to everyone who has completed marathons in the last few weeks and pounding the streets for 26.2 miles in 25C heat is no small feat! The ladies team did us all proud in London - first timers Cathy H and Jo couldn't have picked a worse year for their debut - fantastic first time performances! And great times for seasoned runners Helen, Cathy B, Sara and Me (this is the last one, but I think I said that last year!).

Ed W's fair weather training programme sounds like a great plan for anyone who wants to avoid cold wet long Sunday morning runs, but still want run a marathon in under 4 hours (but you'll have to eat more wine gums to catch me, Ed!!!!!!!!!! ) Or there's the Ed McK "I've done no training" programme that gets you round the course in 3hours 13 (are you sure that you went didn't miss out the 9 miles around the Isle of Dogs?)!!!!!!!

I know that it's hard to think beyond getting ready for THE social event of the year (Awards Dinner on Saturday), but I just wanted to remind you of a few more dates for your diary from the Sussex Grand Prix agenda:

The Hastings 5 miler is on Sunday - meeting at Uplands at 9.00 for a 10.30 race start. A nice gentle way to ease back into racing and manageable with a hangover!

For those who wouldn't get out of bed for less than a 10k, the next race is the Hastings 5 this Sunday followed by the Hailsham 10 miler on the 13th of May. The next events are then Horsham 10k on 20th May, Worthing 10K on 6th June (this one's always a favourite as it's flat and we stop for fish & chips on the way home), and Heathfield 10k on 24th June.

Don't forget to bring your marathon medals on Saturday night - it's just sooooo this season!

Happy running & recovering!

Rachel xox"
