A highly competitive race (in both the mens & womens categories) was made much more “interesting” by the need…

Run & Become 5km

Just how do Run and Become arrange the perfect weather for these great little training sessions?  I decided to give it a bash despite having had a couple of hard training sessions over the last few days.  To say I was tired was being polite.  However, a good hard run to blow out the cobwebs…
