SORE League Week 26

Thank you for posting on the SORE League.

Good luck if you are running the Hitchin Hard Half Marathon on Sunday.

As you stride up those hills have in mind a spritely 98-year-old gentleman called George Etzweiler who last weekend "ran" the Mount Washington Road Race. :nerd_face: He battled through 4,650 feet of elevation over a 7.3 mile course. George struggled with the 40 mph wind which caused him to stumble a few times, but spurred along by the many well-wishers along the way he completed the course in 4:04:48! :clap:

So never give up – just keep smiling and you and everyone else around you will feel so much better!! :relaxed:

Re: SORE League Week 26

Runs for me this week:
14 miles on Thursday around the Greenway and bonus add on in Baldock
18.3 miles today - Home to Letchworth, ran parkrun, then ran back home!

Re: SORE League Week 26

20 miles for me please. Ran with my friend Alex in Liptovsky, Slovakia. My glutes still hate me and may need a break from long runs for a couple of weeks but hopefully she's a step closer to completing her first marathon!

Re: SORE League Week 26

Hitchin Half for me today.

Re: SORE League Week 26

13 miles around the Preston Hills for me today, in the company of quite a few other Squirrels, at the Hitchin Hard Half.

Re: SORE League Week 26

Hitchin hard half for me today. A touch over 13 miles. A good race with lovely support and cake from linda which I noticed she didn't mention. We also had beer afterwards but I suppose there's no extra points for that 🤣

Re: SORE League Week 26

Re: SORE League Week 26

Hi Sue

Jane and I ran 11 sunny miles this morning. 10M for Helen I think. Put the world to right we did!

Well done to all the racers who faced the hills and heat today!


Re: SORE League Week 26

A point for the Hitchin half for me too. Too hot. Too hilly. That's three toos, which makes six, which is one less than the number of races I have run in too months! Which makes four toos which is eight, which is the number of races I will have run in too months after the MWL tomorrow.

And I missed the beer and cake

I think I need a lie down!

Re: SORE League Week 26

Hitchin hard half for me too.

My 4th time doing it and was the first time it has been that hot. A great sprint finish with Chris Poole with us both ending with exactly the same time.In truth I thought he was fractionally ahead of me.

Re: SORE League Week 26

Hi Sue - think Sarah may have already posted but we did 11 miles on Sunday. Lovely run with lovely company.
