Well I think we were all taken aback by it. The severity and scale of it. We all asked ourselves why?
And that was only Joanne Milne’s childhood haircut. The weather was shockin’ too!

Well done to those Harriers who got out to a parkrun somewhere but an even bigger shout for all the volunteers at each event who stand about in the cold so we can run.
Special mention to Mags on her 250th time volunteering. Proper Harrier.
The weather put paid to most other events including the Carlingford Half Marathon that I know many Harriers were planning to run in. This didn’t stop the Sunday club though as many Harriers wrapped up warm and headed to the coast to avoid the ice. Marathoners, half marathoners, 10kers and none of the above were out. Fair play to all of them. No doubt we will all share in your glory via Facebook throughout the day!
I was going to end with Dandelion Hair by Joe Brooks (can’t think why?) but this may be more appropriate. Roll on Spring!
Until next week, behave.
