October Strider of the Month

Alex Ayling - Every single club member brings something to the club. Whether it’s running talent, their quirky personality or determination to run. 2018 was to be the year Alex did her first half marathon but instead of running the Baildon Boundary Way she was preparing for surgery. Post surgery and 6 months chemotherapy (with 7 sessions every 3 weeks) and only 4 weeks after her last treatment (having only managed two short runs) Alex did her comeback race in the 30 degree temperatures in Palma. Suffice to say there were tears and hugs a plenty as she
crossed the finish line. Alex’s determination to get back running has been inspiring. She has been so positive through the months of treatment. Sometimes PBs, long distances, 1st places etc are not significant - but strength of character, guts and sheer determination win out.  What an inspiration this lady is, and how proud we should be as a club to have her as one of our own.  Well done Alex on your running and non running achievements this year - you are a STAR.
