Jackie Stuart reports on a recent race:
On Saturday 5th March I drove over to Cannock Chase to take part in the first of a series of 3, 10k trail runs. Each run is held at a different place on the Chase; the next two are in June and October.
This was a trail run so the ground was very uneven, all covered in stones, mud and water. Fortunately it wasn’t raining but it was extremely cold. My toes and fingers were numb before I’d even started. I joined the start line and saw Jayne. After some instructions from the organisers we set off.
I had decided to take it very carefully because I’d sprained my ankle during the week and it was black, blue, painful and swollen; any sensible person would have decided not to run – but hey, how many runners are sensible! Once I got into the run it eased and I was able to complete the route without stopping.
I’ve already signed up for the next two runs, and from the entry list I see that Jayne has too. Why don’t you join us!
