One of the things I am finding more difficult in my role as Chairman of Saints & Sinners is singling out one person as our runner of the month. This month has been no different as we have so many members doing fantastic things and achieving wonderful goals. So with this in mind, I would like to introduce our two Runners of the Month for February: This is a guy who I am so pleased for and has taken his running to a new level this year. In cranking things up a lot, he has also helped inspire a lot of others within the club and still shows up to training smiling and willing to lead a band of insane speed demons with him as part of his own marathon training plan as well as achieving a new PB during the Brighton half, even though he is marathon training! In spreading the "pain" and the joy, please help me congratulate Ant Neal, or as we have gotten to know him this year, Ordinary Ant.
Our second runner of the month is someone I have had the pleasure of running with on a few of our Monday night social runs. She is someone who always feels she is holding everyone back and tries to ask people to run ahead but it has been a pleasure in seeing her progress so well. Her progression has been so great and I have been keeping a close eye on her training runs as she often juggles an already hectic work and personal life. She has managed to take on the Brighton Half Marathon and had a great running buddy to keep her company as she crossed the finish line safe in the knowledge and assurance she smashed her goal and claimed her finishers medal. Please help in congratulating our second Runner of the Month, Bridgette Russo.
