What a year it has been. The first full year of coaching:
We coached or assisted 11 people in the London Marathon-many of them first timers -Special mention to Rachael and Nigel who raised a huge amount for charity and got David and his fellow Full Monty “dance” troupe to get most of their kit off in front of a large and appreciative audience; Beverley who completed multiple Ultra Marathons and a 50 mile event; Emma who completed several Half Marathons, the Dorchester Marathon and the 33 mile “Race to the Stones” in 9 hours 18 minutes; Sally who has now run for 100 miles in each of the last 3 months; first time and experienced Triathletes to personal bests and conquering open water swims for the first time; Linz went from being in plaster at Christmas 2016 to an age group win at Eton Dorney Olympic distance and 4th in Age group at the very competitive Ironman 70.3 Vichy Half Ironman; and last but far from least Pete who won his age group (70-75) at IM 70.3 Turkey passing his nearest rival on the run leg for the victory!
It’s humbling and inspiring to have helped so many people to achieve their goals, whether that was completing or competing, whether confident or very nervous and doubting themselves. Well done to everyone we helped, we learnt from you too and will go on doing so!
