President’s Tan Talk – September 2018
|A beautiful ‘first day of spring’ day welcomed VRR members and friends to the first Tan Time Trial for the new season.
A special welcome was extended to first-timers, and to our friends from Spartans, who we love to have join us for a run.
As always, there were some notable milestone achievements
Liz Wrigley achieved 50 Tan Time Trials, a great effort.
While Christine Paraskevas and Elizabeth Mitchell achieved an awesome 100 Tan Time Trials, great work girls!!
An update was provided on Neil Ryan’s health, after he fell down the stairs at Runners World, where many VRR members and friends buy their running shoes.
After ten days in the Austin Hospital, Neil went home last week, and had to return to have a drain-tube removed and staples removed from 18 fractures in eight ribs.
Neil is gradually recovering at home, cared for by partner Jo.
We wish Neil a good recovery, he’s been a valued friend of ours for a very long time
(Note that we now start and finish all Tan Trials in Birdswood Avenue, because it is easier for new runners to find us!!!)
