Well we are into the second half of the year and the hype of the Two Oceans and Comrades Marathon has died down and it’s all back to training and qualifying for next year.
There is not a lot of news this month except for the next Ladies Time Trial that is on Thursday the 10th August 2017 at PDAC. We are doing very well in the Walking league but need the lady runners to come and help get our results higher in the other disciplines.
Remember the Club has long sleeve T shirts, caps, peaks and bags for sale. If you are interested in purchasing one of these items you can contact Pam Stewart, also Margie will have a number of these items at the Saturday morning walks.
As the winter has set in there has been a lot of colds and flu going round. Remember if you are not feeling well don’t do any strenuous exercise as this could impact on your health.
Hopefully next month I will have some interesting news to share.
Regards Brian Stewart

Good news for those of you who find it difficult to get to Westville to buy Highway kit and accessories – I have a small stock of items for sale. These will be available on a Saturday morning either before or after our training walks. Strictly cash only please.
