June’s member of the month for the ladies goes to a lady who is not only amazing running whilst dressed as a post box, but exceptionally quick when dressed in suitable run gear!
Lisa Newing had a superb month in June with a fantastic finish as first lady at the Kings Langley Puffa Ten 10k on 16th June. Lisa stormed to the finish line in a speedy 42:47 beating the second lady to finish by over a minute and a half.
Just 5 days later, Lisa took on the St Albans Summer Solstice race with a posse of her team mates and was the first GVH lady to cross the line. Lisa finished in 42.17 earning her 4th placed lady (out of 297) and position 52/550 overall.
Lisa is always noticeably modest about her achievements and I really don’t think she realises just how brilliant and inspiring she is.
Lisa, well done for a brilliant June and thank you for flying our club colours, we’re all proud you’re one of us!
