Sian did her first 10K run on Thursday at our Eastleigh 10K Test Run & Jo S knocked a huge 4 mins off her time from the previous week.
Sadly for those of us who found Lakeside/Wide Lane most convenient for parkrun, it is moving to Royal Victoria Country Park from Sat 17th March - it's been too successful, attracting more runner than the venue could handle.

I started us off from Eastleigh last Jan, keeping a tally of how many of us ran which distances & we got right across Europe & as far as halfway across Turkey before moving house stress had a detrimental effect on my admin!
