Motivation for Fatcats and possibly for chumlies of Fatcats!
However Aisling, lovely person,and bona fide member of Satdee's group has returned from running a marathon Rotterdam. And get this, she ran a sub three hour marathon. Her timing chip recorded 2 hours 59 mins and 58 seconds! That is very very bloody fast indeed. I am in awe. Awe I tell you.
And also I want to mention Lou who ran a whopper of a Marathon in cold cold Paris the other weekend. Whopping ass at 4 :40. Very nice, I'll be chasing that one come October.
Congratulations also to Finn for qualifying for World in August. She can fly, and she'll surely rock it.
John Mc's up next with a d-day of May 4th. With the amount of training he has put in I'm sure he's going to be brilliant. I can't wait to read all about it.
I've got to go have a shower now and head out, but can I just say I heart this little Saturday post. We are out there doing good work, training and getting faster, stronger and better and trying our damn hardest to stay fit and keep body and mind together. Be it hauling our arses out of bed early to work out, or braving the cold/heat, or going to the gym and pool on the days we least can be bothered, we still do it. I love reading the comments on this post most. I love the personal triumphs, like Grims extending her distances and doing it with style. It's nice to have a group to bounce off. It's nicer still to have nice group off.
Well done folks.
