Start as you mean to go on – put some miles in on New Year’s Day!

Back long ago when I was trying to be a decent race walker [and indeed, even now, as I’m still an obsessive soul] there was something special and significant about putting in a session on the first day of the new year. I can remember being out bright and early on eerily, empty Bolton roads with Ron Wallwork, Eric Crompton, Mick Entwistle, Steve Crow, Dave Vickers and Julian Hopkins, amongst others, feeling we were putting one over on those future competitors, who had stayed in bed, nursing their partners or hangovers. We congratulated ourselves on being made of sterner stuff!

Hence I propose that the first of our New Year resolutions ought to be, ‘I will train, come, what may, on New Year’s Day’.

As you look ahead here is what I’m still calling the provisional 2018 Fixtures List – my apologies if there is a later version. I can easily incorporate revisions – please advise.
