And so the quest to become Winter Grand Prix Champion 2017 begins this Sunday with our first event, the Vale Gallop off-road 10k run! Looking forward to seeing lots of you there although sadly my ongoing (never ending?) chest infection means I won’t be participating myself. I will of course be providing vocal encouragement to those of you who are running, so if you hear something that sounds remarkably like a beached Zalophus californianus that will be me!

The following Saturday (4th February) will be the 1000m swim TT event in the WGP. This swim can be undertaken in either of the club swim sessions that morning and we will generally make a lane available for those not wishing to participate - or perhaps persuade you to help with timing and lap counting! Two weeks after that it will be the swim/run so expect the weather to turn even colder for those brave enough to take part!

Sadly the lurgy got the better of me and I missed out on doing the Tanners walk a few weeks ago with Tracy and Jackie but I’m hoping that I’ll be ok for the Punchbowl on Feb 12th if any of you are also going to be there? Saint Ted and Jackie are the organisers so be sure to say thank you if you are taking part?

If any of you want anything raised at Club Committee then the next meeting is on 31st Jan - either mail me or catch up with others on the Committee at training?

Finally, make sure your lovely new 2017 diary has the w/end of 13/14 May inked in to assist at the EG Tri - every bit of help is appreciated even if it's just an hour or two on either day!

Train safe
