Alternatively ANOTHER CITY, ANOTHER MARATHON, ANOTHER GARAGE
Once again our illustrious chairman upheld club honour by stopping a Shell garage at 40K to but a bottle of Coca Cola, this man is a legend in his own lifetime.
Otherwise the Milers annual Marathon trip was without any major controversy, we all travelled on the same plane, all stayed in the same hotel and we didn't lose anyone all weekend, we must be getting either soft or organised!
Eight Milers and our latest "Country Member" Gerard trained, entered and ran Munich Marathon, all nine crossed the finish line. The magnificent nine were
Chris McCann 3-06
Dave Jackson 3-43
Malcolm Gatenby 3-45
Gavin Loy 3-47
Colin Foreman 4-11
Gary Wells 4-12
Dominic Pilkington 4-12
Gerard McHugh 4-29
Martin Scadden 4-40
Special congratulations must go to the Marathon Virgins, Gary, Dominic, Gerard, lets hope that their the first of many more marathons for all three.
Special moment of the tour
Malcolm G " Don't worry I speak German, Nine tickets please whilst holding up 5 fingers!
New Official Club Positions
Martin Scadden: Club Nutritionist. Anyone looking for advice on a healthy marathon training diet should avoid asking Martin. A special feature on his amazing diet will be featured here shortly.
Dominic Pilkington: TEAM DAD Dominic spent all weekend making sure we got on the right train, carried the kitty and generally kept the troops in order.
THE SOCIAL ELEMENT
Following the run copious amounts of beer were consumed firstly in a Beer Garden in the middle of an allotment plot (we find them!) thence to the Hofhaus for the traditional steins of beer, it went downhill from then on.
Congratulations to all Nine, lets see you all running Dubai marathon come January in a Milers Vest.
