On the final Tuesday of the month nine athletes from Grantham Running Club travelled to Lincoln to take part in match two of the LWAC 5k series and challenge the perceived wisdom that “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result” as they tried in blustery conditions to improve on the May times. First home for GRC was Daniel Pearce taking a second off his previous best to claim a PB with Peter Bonner close on his heels two seconds behind. A further three seconds back was Gav Meadows in his first 5k for four years. The final finisher for the club also secured a personal best as Sarah High crossed the line over 20 seconds faster than she had ever run the distance.
Three of the runners also took park in the Mile Race half an hour before when the wind was a bit stronger putting paid to decent times and ended up having to use it as part of their warm-up – perhaps next month will be better!
