Surrey League XC Ladies League Div 2 1st Match Results

Hi All

Just as well I was late circulating the results of the 1st Ladies XC match
as there had been some mistakes in the previous 2 lots, and now I think I
should circulate the 3rd version.  Let's hope there's no 4th version unless
to our advantage!

Anyway, the first match was held at the Lightwater Country Park on
Saturday, 8 October at 1200hrs.  The day was dry and somewhat sunny but
somewhat windy.  It was great to see 5 ladies turned up to run - Katherine,
Melanie, Monica, Helen and me.  Barry Walters and Nick Edge arrived early
to support the ladies team before the men's event which started at 1500hrs.

The course took in a small lap and 2 large laps with a total distance of
about 6.4km.  It was hilly in parts but everyone in the team ran well.  Kat
shot off like a bullet at the fire of the gun, followed by the rest of us.
I was hopeful of a great score knowing that Kat was right in front with the
leaders.  As I came round to start my 3rd lap, I saw Kat at our base
putting on her warm top and grinned.  She was fast!  It was only after I
finished my run and went to congratulate Kat on her speedy run that she
explained she had actually stopped after 2 laps because of asthma problem.
So as not alarm anyone, she was OK after taking her medication.

When we all finished, we had a little picnic at base with our sail flag
flying proudly in the wind.  Mel coudln't join us as she needed to go home,
but the rest of us together with Barry and Nick tucked into Kat's birthday
cake, some sandwiches and pudding and tea & coffee.  There was even a
tipple supplied by Monica!

Thanks to everyone who attended for a great time.  Let's hope more ladies
will turn up to run in December.  Unfortunately I will not be able to
attend as I am running the Singapore Marathon on 4 Dec.  However, the men's
captain Barry has offered to look after the ladies at this match.

Date of the next match - 3rd December 11 - Richmond Park, Petersham End
(Ranelagh Harriers).  As soon as I get more information I will circulate.
Let's hope more ladies will turn up to run in December.  Unfortunately I
will not be able to attend as I am running the Singapore Marathon on 4 Dec.
However, the men's captain Barry has offered to look after the ladies at
this match.
