Welcome to the brand new SLGR blog where we hope to share news, achievements and information with you and more importantly about you. If you are doing something amazing, we want to know and shout about it, so please let us know and send photos.
Firstly, you should have received an email today from England Athletics inviting you to renew your membership. I have just done mine and it’s a really quick and easy way to renew but if you prefer cold hard cash, Clive Penny is your man. I have added the photos of the SLGR committee, any questions about membership or anything else, just grab one of us.
It’s only three weeks to the London Marathon so there were a few of you out this weekend for your last really long run before race day, now time to start the tapering before race day. I joined Jonathon and Mark running the first 18 miles of the route on Friday, I left them at the Cutty Sark while they continued on up to Tower Bridge and Canary Wharf before coming back through the Greenwich foot tunnel. Hopefully most of you managed to come along to our flying coach visit by Mara Yamauchi last week, lots of top tips and interesting stories about marathon running, nutrition and race preparation.
That’s all for now, don’t forget to check back for regular updates and send us your news.
