Saturday 8th December – Runner of the Month for November

Many worthy nominations again this month and the accolade goes jointly to Graham Lake and Hannah Mallinson who both enjoyed personal success during the 30 days…

Graham began with a fine performance in the West Yorkshire Cross-Country @ Guiseley finishing 128th followed by pbs in the following weeks at the Leeds Park Run 5km (18.28) and Clowne Half Marathon (87.32).

In a similar vein, Hannah started November with a good run in the Guy Fawkes 10 Miles at Ripley (99.38), a pb in the Leeds Abbey Dash 10km (56.14) and capped off with a winning performance in the Club Handicap Race at Weeton.

Well done to you both!

    Thanks everyone, it was very nice surprise. Think I may have killed myself now though as my legs have given up and I think I’m going to have to rest. I have no idea how you serious runners manage to do what you do month after month – you’re all nuts!

    see, this is what happens when you join the mighty ‘black and whites’, in less than a year you knock 10mins off your half marathon PB, and you keep disappearing up the chevin in the wind, rain and dark to do something I’m informed is called a ‘hill session’. I’d call it hell, and I love it…

    thanks for the messages :o)
