Martin’s Blog 26th June

No runners this weekend so some family time. Belinda, Freddie & Harry did a fun run at Sherborne School near Bourton on the Water yesterday morning and the boys improved nearly a minute on last years’ times and both finished 3rd in their age group so were pretty pleased with their performance. Belinda was delighted to run with them this year as last year needed to find another parent to do so – she couldn’t keep up with Freddie and just managed to stay with Harry!

We had a late lunch in the Broadway Hotel with Richard & Danka Davies and the boys, with their endless energy, played football on the green.

Schooling morning this morning and we schooled Cottersrock, Sporty Yankee, Thady Quil, Ocean Eleven and Ask Alice. They all jumped well.

Two runners at two different meetings today. Whatalove goes to Chepstow where she finished 2nd last time and a repeat performance will see her thereabouts again today. Lerichi Belle goes tonight to Southwell. She ran a great race last time to finish 2nd at Uttoxeter and it would be fantastic if she could go one better tonight. She needs to settle as well as she did last time as can get quite buzzy but James Nixon got on well with her that day so he rides her again tonight.
