A couple of weeks ago Lily took part in her first “Open Meet”. Basically it’s a crazy event that anyone can enter as long as you run for a club and have an England Athletics Number. Athletes from near and far meet and compete with people at their level regardless of sex and age! So in the 1500m race there were athletes from Aldershot, Essex, Oxford, Rugby, Milton Keynes etc… and ages ranged from u13-u17. It makes for a very different and interesting run. Lily and Ants were in the same 1500m race because both their PB’s were very similar and they came in neck and neck… a very exciting race to watch! Both came away with new PB’s (Lily 5.02.74, Ants 5.02.61).

Yesterday, Lily and Orla ran the 800m at the Watford Open and were again neck and neck getting really good times (Lily 2.33.00, Orla 2.32.33).
