Happy Spring Day!!
Isn’t this just a fantastic time of year. It’s warm in the mornings when we get up to run, it’s almost light the whole run, the blossoms are out with their sweet smells and the leaves are getting leaves on them again.
To celebrate, Spring, Denton is hosting his 3rd (and unfortunately last) Bombers Spring Run at his house in Fourways Gardens this coming Saturday 3rd Sept at 6 am.
This is a great opportunity for those that have been waiting for a better time to start running to START. It will also be great to see all the new Bomber faces, so Robyn, Mandy, Dave & Kerry bring the boys and girls to meet Denton & Angie’s new arrival, Jemma (apparently she is really cute!). Also, I know that Terry and Bridget will be walking, so any preggie ladies out there are welcome to join them. Baby Joggers are also welcome.
You need to bring yourself and all authorised hangers on! Some juice if you are a guy and something to eat if you are a girl.
Denton’s address is 11 Kareeboom Avenue, Fourways Gardens (click here for a map: http://g.co/maps/ut7e )
(Take William Nichol past Fourways Mall. At the Leaping Frog centre turn left into Uranium road. At the next set of robots turn right into Bushwillow. At the circle first left into Fourways Gardens Phase 1. Enter your access code to get through the boom. At the next circle first left into Kareeboom. Number 11 is the second house on your right).
Denton’s mobile is 0828047274, so please RSVP to him so he can SMS you the access code.
This is also a farewell for Denton, Angie and the girls who will be moving permanently to Durban (I can hear Gary and Lauren licking their chops) in a few months. So lets give them a big send off. I know that I probably wouldn’t have been running with the Bombers if it wasn’t for Denton – and I certainly wouldn’t have run my 1st Comrades!!

Well done to Doug for running his half marathon PB of 1:28:15 at the Wanderer’s Half last Sunday – awesome achievement and I doubt that time will last long.
Have a fantastic Spring Day – go for a swim! See you all on Saturday!
