There I sat at the front of the computer lab, my students industriously tapping away on their keyboards at the latest problem I had set them and I saw an email drop into my inbox the title read:
I was instantly drawn to it as I saw it was from my good running pal, James Elson of Centurion Running and these fine words jumped from the text:
"... We have a gap on the sweeper roster for the TP100 between Windsor mile 28 and Henley mile 51...."
followed by a big grin by myself, I'll have some of that, an excellent opportunity to get some slowed paced, river running with a nice chunk of night running to boot whilst helping out my fellow runners. The logistics are a little interesting as I will have to drop the car off at Henley then take a train back to my start point as I don't want to get snagged in an extended supply chain...but, hey, I am well up for this and even have Mrs S vaguely on side as it doesn't eat into the day!
