Was Runner Of The Month for

May-20
Another month of restrictions, no club nights, no races and little social mixing allowed. Again, you'd think not much would really happen and we wouldn't have a lot to highlight... But WOW, there's still been countless PB's set in the lockdown league, people training harder than ever and a number of people really getting back into their running, making it a tough decision.

This month though, we want to highlight some of those, who have been reminding us about some of the key benefits of running, that can sometimes be forgotten about. A release, something to put your mind to, a way to escape, a way to explore and appreciate our surroundings or a way to motivate & challenge yourself.

May has seen many LERC'ers, such as Errol, Darlington, Ian & Kim, Nikki and Sarah, show us these benefits and what running can do for you. However, our man Aaran has combined all of this for a phenomenal & inspirational month of running.

For a bit of context, before lockdown, Aarans previous record mileage for a week was just over 30 miles and 65 miles for a month. Just before Christmas he went 3 months barely running and struggled with a number of issues.

But lockdown has seen a meteoric rise in the man, with his enjoyment of running coming back and tellingly making a positive impact, with Aaran setting himself target after target. This has culminated in a May where he has ran...
307 miles.
30 days in a row.
8 consecutive Half-marathons (plus)
and finishing with a 101 mile week.
This final week, also saw a special 'Chat with Chant' episode, which I'd recommend having a look at, just to gain the personal account from Aaran himself.

On top of all that, he's a thoroughly top guy.
Enjoy your day off, congratulations and we look forward to seeing what you can come up with next!
