Hello! So its May already!
I have failed in my mission to get two newsletters out in April, it was an ambitious but well meant plan. But you know what, failure is ok, mistakes will be made and no-one is perfect. Everyone’s bottom has a crack in it. Onwards and upwards with plenty of marathon madness to celebrate!
Huge congratulations to all our marathon runners over the last few weeks, Dawn, Paula, Donna, Melanie, Annemarie and Natalie have all completed the awesome task inspiring us all. There is yet to come the Moonwalk Marathon where we will see yet more marathoners created.
I am delighted to see how many have already entered the London Marathon ballot on opening day! REMEMBER to be considered for the club place in London and Brighton marathons you must be a paid up member and have entered the ballot for London, forwarding your confirmation email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In October those Oh ladies who have been unsuccessful in the ballot will have a second chance in the club place lucky draw. You MUST have entered the main ballot by this Friday to be considered for the club draw – don’t miss your opportunity!

An Oh Invitation:
As an Oh Lady you are invited to the ‘test’ run of the new Ellenbrook Field parkrun on May 14th! The test will take most of the morning as it is a practice ‘run’ so it won’t be exactly like a ‘real’ parkrun until the following week, May 21st when we have our inaugural run. If you would like to volunteer please enter your details here http://www.parkrun.org.uk/ellenbrookfields/, if you would like to run please arrive from 9:30 am om the 14th, with a view to start the run at 10 am. Although you will get a time, the run won’t count towards your parkrun total as it is a test event. All details are at: http://www.parkrun.org.uk/ellenbrookfields/
Sunday Brunch Club is on this Sunday, May 8th at 8 am at Gosling Running track, followed by Brunch at Bill’s! Everyone is welcome and the session is suitable for everyone.
