Thank you for posting on the SORE League.
Do you like cheese enough to take part in this bizarre event?! :joy:
It takes place every year in June at the very top of Cooper's Hill in Brockworth where the Master of Ceremonies releases a nine pound wheel of Double Gloucester cheese which can take on speeds of over 70mph as it rolls 200 yards down the hill. The first person to get to the bottom of the hill wins the race and the cheese! :cheese_wedge:

It's only 4, 3, 2, 1 park runs to go...
My mantra when running long distances is to count what's left in park runs... Not that I had ever run a park run before, it just seemed more manageable. Park run makes it sound like a nice leisurely run... #whatsinaname?
So, today Andy and I embarked on our first ever park run, in St Andrews.
However, once realising that the hotel was just over 2 miles to the start of the park run... 2+3+2 = close enough to go for SORE points.
So, today's park run became a 10 mile run around road, park and (thanks to advice from a friendly local) trail...
1/2 point each please :wink:
12 rainy miles round the streets of Leominster this morning - quite a relief to run in rain and cooler temperatures!
