A very Proud day

Just 3 weeks after graduating from the 2021 MAC Outreach programme, more than half of the team took on their second 10K Challenge for charity raising an amazing £1800 for cancer research.

In May they were all struggling to keep running for 2 minutes until Baz blew his whistle…now they are on fire!

I may no longer be their coach but that doesn’t stop me feeling SO PROUD of these guys who completed the MAC Outreach programme and the 10K race for life challenge on Sunday. (11 October 2021).

Today the weather was grim, the course was tough off road, lots of slippery grass and rabbit holes and lots of inclines, but it didn’t stop each and every one them completing the course with huge smiles on their faces and plenty of laughter and banter.

Was it just me or was the pressure off today?

They all know they are SUPERSTARS already and capable of running the 10K and they seemed to relax and get in their rhythm and just SMASH IT.

It was tough for Baz Goldstone and I today, our instinct is to keep doubling back and picking them up, but we knew that we have to let our fledglings fly and my goodness – they did just that!

Every single one of them proved they are REAL RUNNERS.

For us, it was lovely to run with ‘friends’, not because it’s our job – but because we CHOOSE to.

They are such an awesome bunch and we love them all to bits – all of them so special and all have individual qualities that make them so AWESOME.

Whoop whoop, never give up and you never give in.

Go team outreach GO
