Whilst sales os vests in the COMPLETE RUNNER shops could be better, the weather doesn't tend to effect the FASTRAX side of the business. We've been sending out hundreds of vests each week as usual. Many recently for next week's English Schools Track & Field Championships up at Gateshead next Friday and Saturday. I hope the event will be on Sky again. Have to look out for that.
Sadly no TV coverage when I turned out for Lancashire in the 2000 metre steeplechase way back in 1967.
Mind you I wouldn't have look good in black and white.
The sun was due to make a reappearance this weekend but as yet is being a tad shy. After a steady 6.5 on the trail Thursday and an easy 3.5 yesterday
I ran my usual easy 3 on the grass this morning and it was very warm.
I forecast the clouds will clear entirely about 10.55 tomorrow morning in Manchester. The PLATT FIELDS 10k will start 5 minutes later and we will be treated to temperatures in the mid 20s for an hour or so at which point it will probably pour down again!
So if you are racing tomorrow don't forget your sun screen......and your rain jacket. Have a good one!
