It was back to the track last Saturday, you worked hard, it was a tough session.
It was awesome to see our RaceTeam Epic crew back after their half marathon last weekend, Karen G is back after a couple of months away, we welcomed Sarah along for the very first time (well done!), and many of you have joined RaceTeam starting this week..so the legs will get used to these track sessions very shortly!.
Lance and Kate kept each other honest with some good friendly competition and for many of you this was your first track session with Saturday Runners. Everyone looked pretty happy when it was all over - a good test of fitness.
