I know what you’re thinking: this picture is taken in a pub! You’d be right, but let me explain. Every month, our club has a competitive training session, called the Distance League, which is always rounded off with presentations and refreshments in a local pub. This evening we all did a couple of laps around Wrenthorpe totalling about 2.75 miles, the 5th event of the season. For reasons that I won’t go into now, we didn’t end up in a pub in Wrenthorpe, but in “The College” which is in central Wakefield and always offers us a really warm welcome.
One of the things we did this evening was award trophies for our two Club Champions for 2015, Adam and Jenny. It was a special evening for Jenny since this was the first time she had won a trophy in any sport and it really was well deserved!
Earlier in the day I visited my physio at Coach House, Leeds for a general check-up, massage and advice about how to stay out of trouble injury-wise during my marathon training. On the way out you can imagine the surprise when I saw another champion, none other than Jonathan Brownlee waiting in reception. It was a rather surreal moment when Jonny had to go and find out if it was Alistair’s car blocking mine in the car park. The best thing was that he did have some words of encouragement regarding my marathon training which was truly awesome!
