Mentioned in Dispatches
Some great running from everyone this weekend with a lot of new PBs being set. However Linda Edwards set a new PB in her park run on Saturday. This meant that she has set a new PB in every distance from 1 mile to marathon this year. An outstanding year from Linda that will no doubt inspire many runners. Well Done.
