Tonight there was 7 of us in our group. It was raining through most of the run but not as cold as I thought it was. I ran at the back of the group with Gordon and we chatted about our training and inevitably the whw race. I’m afraid it’s often at the top of my list of conversations!
After about 4 miles a couple of guys turned left and headed back as they wanted a shorter run. By then Davie and Neal had pushed on and were a few hundred yards away. I decided to try and catch them. You can see from the increased pace 7.16 and 6.56 that I had to work hard to do so. The three of us then ran in together. Neal was struggling a bit on the hill out of Johnstone but he soon caught us again on the downhill to Elderslie.
