WMC: December 2016
Fabulous morning to launch my training for the London Marathon.
With blue skies; 13 of us ran 6 miles around Letcombe Regis — apologies for the hills and mud!
And 7 walked (thanks to June) before we arrived back at the Church Hall to the delicious smell of bacon cooking — 3 fabulous ladies Helen, Diane and Jan had prepared vats of warming porridge followed by bacon rolls and pastries to tuck into while we chatted.
Thank you to everyone who made this such a memorable start to 16 weeks of training.
More photos to follow.
And £85.40 raised.
