Lyrics: My baby makes me proud
Lord, don't she make me proud
Sadly these lyrics are all too appropriate I believe!
What: will be a short run of some description
Why: struggled Saturday so need to back off a little
A very successful dinner with lots of people who hadn't seen one another since our 50th dinner in 1975! A couple of excellent speakers including John Whetton who some will have heard of: Olympic 1500 final in 1964 and 1968, and European Champion in 1969, plus three European indoor titles. He spoke mostly about his almost daily training with Ron Hill, even though their events (1500 and marathon) were in many ways poles apart. That was our 95th anniversary dinner and a couple of us have started making plans for the 100th!
Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.
