September 2019 – Chairmans Comments
I feel quite nostalgic that this is my last committee meeting, I feel like I have learnt so much from you all over the last 3 years as chair and committee member before that. I admire the commitment and enthusiasm you all show for the club and this is evident as the club is growing stronger and bigger each year. You have been a pleasure to work with and we have all worked so well as a team to make this year as successful as it has been. Thank you to all of you for making this role such a pleasure. Those of you choosing to stand down thank you for your contribution over the last few years and those of you continuing on the committee, thank you and if you need anything from me I am not going anywhere so please just ask. I will always love being a Stopsley Strider and am looking forward to continuing to run with the club without having to do the announcements each night.
Our pilates classes have been running a year this month and I know many of us have really seen the benefits in our running from Tahira’s sessions. These are brilliant workouts that are tailored and specific to our runners, Tahira varies the exercises each week and responds to our requests. If you haven’t tried it yet, I would really recommend giving it a go.
The evenings are starting to get darker now and evening runs across the fields already seem like a long time ago. Please ensure to wear bright clothing, stay seen and stay together when out running in the dark evenings
