I have heard that the sun did come out in Handsworth and a large group of like minded friends met up to chat, run encourage and show skills that only a few weeks ago they did not know they had.
Running for me has away been about getting myself fit by training with fellow runners, pushing hard. Now that the boat house runners have started up its wonderful to see new faces finding the joys of running and ending with big smiles on their faces.
Congratulations to Becky who runs with me 8.30 group who completed her 5k race for life - a great achievement for someone who has only started running recently.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone next Sunday and hearing all the great stories as we run.
Don't forget to enter a run and give yourself a goal to aim at, The Pete Hayes Handsworth 10k Run on the 14th September is a great run, raise money for the British Heart Foundation and keep alive the memory of my son Pete.
