⭐⭐⭐Member of the Month for April is Craig Sisson⭐⭐⭐
Alittle bit about him:
Craig joined the club around 6 years ago after his wife Nicole joined the club.
Craig enjoys the social side of running and the evening runs get him out of bedtime chores with his toddler!!
Not one to shout about his achievments, Craig has run two marathons this month (Manchester and London) within three weeks of each other and on both occasions managed sub 3.30.
Craig gained his London place via the club ballot and did the club proud in his black and silver vest, even when cramp struck, he dug deep and finished in a great time.
Well done Craig.
⭐⭐⭐Member of the Month for March is Helen Louise⭐⭐⭐
Alittle bit about her;
Helen joined our beginners course in January 2016 with the aim of completing a 5km Race for life without walking or disgracing herself (of which she did neither).
While running Cambridge half marathon at the beginning of March, her running buddy pulled up injured at mile 7 and had to walk/run the remainder of the run.
Before the injury, the ladies were running at a pace near to Helens pb time. Helen, being the lovely lady that she is, decided to for go her pb chance and accompany her partner on her walk/run to the end.
Helen encouraged her friend to shout, scream and cry (whatever she wanted or needed to do to get round) and even held her hand from mile 10 to to the finish line.
Well done Helen, a true friend.
⭐⭐⭐Member of the month for February is Kirsty Millard⭐⭐⭐
A little bit about her;
Kirsty started running after the birth of her son to get fit and lose the baby weight.
She found the training needed for the longer distances gave her ‘me time’.
She has been an HRC member for around nine years and has completed more than 25 marathons and four ultra marathons!!
On 10th Feb, Kirsty ran The Olympic Park half marathon in an incredible time of 1hr 32m coming 5th in her age catergory and finishing in 278th place out of 4056 runners and putting her 5th in the HRC club records.
If that wasn’t enough, kirsty then went on to complete Tarpley 20 on 24th Feb in an awesome time of 2hrs 31m and putting her in top spot on the all time HRC club records by around 3 minutes!! Her time also secured her second in her age cat.
Fabulous running Kirsty.
⭐⭐⭐⭐January member of the month is Gina Hickey.⭐⭐⭐⭐
Alittle bit about her;
Gina joined our beginners course in January 2018 with the aim to run a 5k non stop for charity.
Despite having her own battles with injury and an operation at the end of last year and just building up her own mileage, this month Gina helped her friend cope with her running anxieties when she wanted to return to running after a break.
Her friend suffered from anxiety and panic attacks at the very thought of running.
Gina, with her calm and caring approach was there to listen to her friends fears and gave up her time to run with her when she needed her. Gina was there every step of the way to build her confidence and get her pounding the streets again.
Well done Gina.
