Mick's Announcements 29th February

It's about 14 years since we last produced a podcast, and from memory we only made about 3. But they have proved to be a wonderful vignette of the past and a lasting record that includes members who are sadly no longer with us.
Very recently Mick lost Caroline, his wife and partner of 40 years. Caroline's passing was not unexpected and Mick has approached it gracefully, parking the sadness of loss and concentrating on the gift and beauty of memories. Out of the blue, Mick contacted me and asked if I would record club announcements on Thursday the 29th February as a podcast. Alongside regular club matters, traditional club banter and a long list of athletic performances, Mick paid tribute to Caroline, focussing on better times, themes of love, companionship and the comfort and solace that running provides (he also encouraged marriage proposals, but you'll need to listen to it).
The podcast, is less conversational in style and more of a lasting record to an important time and a special person. We hope you enjoy listening to it.

Club Safety Guidelines

The following advice is intended to keep our runners SAFE at all times!
It is also essential that, whilst out running as a club, we are seen to be polite, responsible, set a good example & not put others at risk.
AT ALL TIMES BE SAFE BE SEEN! You can never be too visible! During the day, always wear bright or light-coloured clothing - fluorescent is good.
At night we would strongly recommend that people ALWAYS wear light-coloured clothing plus a REFLECTIVE (not just fluorescent) bib or sash.
Clip on flashers are a great way to be seen. NEVER ASSUME YOU'VE BEEN SEEN. Always be cautious with traffic.
We would like to remind people that they are responsible for their own safety and that they run at their own risk.
