Anyone who can't run just remember these very wise words:
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...
And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...
And to quote a Frenchman: "Now go away or I will taunt you a second time."Click to Read More...

To everyone from K&D running London Marathon tomorrow:
It doesn't matter if you're running for a record breaking time or just hoping to not be seen by the cameras as you stagger over the line like a drunk octopus in stiletto's.
It doesn't matter if you PB or swear as a man dressed as a beer bottle passes you at 16 miles.
Be sensible. Run your own race. Don't go off too fast and enjoy your day.
p.s. We've got you all down for a hill session on Wednesday. Sound ok? 🙂Click to Read More...
Once again Knowle & Dorridge RC have 6 women's and 6 men's places available for the London Vitality 10k on Monday 29th May. It's a Bank Holiday, the sun is usually shining and you get to finish on The Mall infront of Buckingham Palace. No tea with Her Maj though. A handful of these places are still to be filled.
Our teams usually end up a good mix of all abilities. You don't win the lottery unless you put your hat in the ring. It is a brilliant race, fast, flat and with a lovely t-shirt and medal.
If you would like to be considered for selection please email as soon as possible (i.e. now!):
Women's Team - Captain Kathy Bailey at email@example.com
Men's Team - Captain Torsten Roesler at torsten_roesler
They can then co-ordinate your entry with our Club Sec. Jo Tork.Click to Read More...
