Hot and Sunny!


TRAC member Glyn Jenkins didn’t have the trouble the rest of us have had with the recent weather, when headed over to Cyprus for a bit of winter sun recently, and as well as his duty free, came back with some trophies in his suitcase as well!

On 21st November, Glyn ran a 10k race in Limassol, in about 25C. Finishing 31st out of 150, and 1st O/60, to claim his first trophy of the trip, and was treated like a star back at the hotel!

A week later, he ran a 1/2 Marathon in Pathos, in even hotter conditions - 28C. Faded a bit after 10 miles. Mike Gratton was at a drink station there and must have jinxed it by saying "Come on Glyn, looking good!" He still finished in 1.45, 61st out of over 200, again 1st O/60, and another trophy. Very hot, loads of blisters - Just pleased to finish. Hotel boss had already announced that they were sponsoring Glyn!

The following week, a 5k handicap race, and came 3rd fastest in 20m 05s.

Two days later, Glyn had great fun as he got lost on his first Hash House trail run!

Well done Glyn! Thanks for sharing this with us – sounds like a cracking trip!

Don't forget to let us know if you are running far and wide!
