    Clive Cookson 10K, 24th May 2017

    It is 3 years since I ran this race, just a few weeks after my attempt at London marathon, if I remember right, it was a nice day then as well.

    I wasn't aware it was on, but was messaged by Kirsty who was wondering if anyone else from the club would be running. I messaged a couple of the... Continue reading »

    NEMAA T&F Match 1

    Great to be back on the track at Monkton, I am not a big fan of the track, but I do enjoy supporting the masters events. There is a masters event for everything there is in the senior leagues, sometimes though it is just incorporated in another event.

    Anyway, I have been banging the drum at... Continue reading »

    NEMAA Road Race Relay Champs, Bedewell Park

    For some of us it was the fourth race in 8 days, but for most of us is it was the third, it is definitely getting into the heart of racing season.

    NEMAA is a great community of runners, in the more mature of age groups, butContinue reading »

    You could almost have boiled an egg…

    My third race in five days, I would expect to be getting tired, but it still feels good. Great banter and event on Wednesday at the relays, and Friday was the trail run at Soooth Sheelz which, was just a good run with Lee, so when this morning came round, I was still keen. I ran the Sand Dancer last... Continue reading »

    Do as I say, not as I do…

    Big advocate of not overdoing racing, even training I think quality can be better than quantity. But , this week my diary is chocker with racing, I ran the Neptune relays on Wednesday evening and last night (Friday) I ran a trail race at Soooth Sheelz with Lee Drummond. I am doing the Sand Dancer... Continue reading »

    The Main Event – Dave Lamond

    Its finally here, the main event after months of planning and inconstant training I find myself in Newcastle airport chatting to Rob Wilson and the young lady who picked my name from the hat sealing my fate so many months ago. Rob and his family were off to Spain for the Madrid marathon which he smashed... Continue reading »

    Sedgefield Success!

    This one worked well for me, not often I am racing , and don't need to be up early or dashing home from work. Today was the Neptune relays at Sedgefields Herdwick Hall. This isn't a race I have ever done, , but it wasn't a rush for me, cos it was my day off, and so long as I got my list of chores... Continue reading »

    What do Grangemouth, London, Madrid and Manchester all have in common?

    It’s a very rare occasion that we have a weekend pass without somebody pinning a number onto their vest to represent the club but this past week has really demonstrated the growing scope and ambitions of our great club. We had people competing across a whole range of events, in not one, but three different... Continue reading »

    Elswick Good Friday Relays 2017

    I am not the best riser when I am off work, but I had a late night last night so that didn't help much either. I woke at 7:30 ish but I must have dozed off as I waited for Linda bringing me my coffee and bacon sandwich. So nearly 9 o clock, and I was just about awake, and starting to think about getting...

    The Long Run – Dave Lamond VLM Diary

    First of all I would like to apologise for not keeping you up to date with my training, but the fact is it has been inconsistent to say the least. This has not been due to a lack of desire but mainly to life commitments out of my control.

    Since my last instalment I have managed to get a couple... Continue reading »

    1st Birtley Junior XC Relays

    By now you all know I am not a morning person, so when I said I would help, you know that most of the setting up has been done by the time I crawl out my cot. So, when I turn up eventually there were 9 cars parked at the kerbside and the gates were locked. I checked the clock on the car dashboard... Continue reading »
