Hello my muddy little pumpkins,
I hope you are all well & have jetwashed your previously immaculate trainers ready for the next fixture? (That includes you Ken Milligan!!)
The first fixture at Margam Park was very successful from my point-of-view & overwhelmingly supported my belief that we have more than enough mud-lovers to give the non-tri clubs a good run for their money!
The conditions were ideal for grizzly veterans & nervous novices alike with enough grime to give the nasty-fasties a bit of work to do & enough firm ground for the rookies to get their breath back between soggy-boggy bits. Supporters too had favourable conditions & weren't too battered as they looked on adoringly at their loved ones ''Shift your butt you slug, the kids are desperate to go to MacDonalds''.
Reflecting on the results, it's good to see that we had representation throughout the range of abilities as it gives our newer members enough encouragement to 'have a go' & not feel that they have to be cheetahs before pulling on the club vest. Having said that, points make prizes so a big fat muddy 'well done' to Jimmy & Jayne for leading the way for the guys'n'gals respectively.
Next up is Llanmadoc, North Gower on Sunday November 18th & full details can be found on the website: www.westglamleague.co.uk
Some of you may recall my 'rough guide to the cross-country season' e-mail a few months back - this next fixture has it all - trail, puddles, dunes, sand & a good finish - it's the dog's doodahs!! Please help me spread the word about this race at club training sessions as we must build on our initial success at Margam.
If you have any questions about the next race or your preparation for it, just drop me an e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org or bell me on 07948 794077 in the evening.
