"Winter gatherings.....16th October and 13 November"
The winter is almost upon us, time to look out the trendy winter running gear, unless you still insist in just wearing shorts and vest because you're 'ard !
To brighten up the winter months the royal 'we' will be hosting a series of gatherings, this isn’t a meeting of counter culture revolutionaries (like the first club I was in, plus we've already had a Bob Graham night !), nor is there forced participation, just in case you are an introverted runner who refrains from any notion of group activity, but it’s just a little get together to chew the fat over related running topics.
The format is the usual, pick a topic , any topic at all, come along after the Tues night run, enjoy the spread of food laid before you and join in the chat or just listen, you don’t even have to stand up and admit to your running addiction .....have I sold it to you, yes, well come along !
First session is on Tues 16th Oct, approx. 8.30pm location is the ILTCS room at the back, food supplied (includes chips, and we always hope there’s chips)
Subject matter is : Club Coaching
Meet up to talk about Life after LiRF. 10 Harriers have attended Leader in Running Fitness courses this year and will be putting their new skills to use for the Club. Come along to discuss what the course was like , how the Club can use those skills, what other coaching qualifications and courses are there. If you can help with coaching or have some suggestions on how the coaches could help you, come along!
Next session is 13th Nov,
Subject matter is : The return of vinyl – Does this reflect a need to return to a more tactile society as we are consumed into the iFamily and live a virtual life on Tubeface (or whatever it’s called)! …. perhaps not, it may focus on the Fell Championship races and provide the club captains an opportunity to get the ball rolling on the championship races.
For 2013 (yes, 2013, who would have thought!) any suggestions are welcome, please feel free to suggest any worthy topics, for Jan we may look to cover “Get ready for the spring marathon” as I’m sure many will be thinking “I need to get ready for a spring marathon”…..I think it merits a thumbs up !
