Was Runner Of The Month for

Nov-19
November has been the culmination of a superb year for Wadey, with a PB at the flood-affected Derby 10, meaning that he has now set a PB at every major distance this year!

This continues a sustained period of continuous improvement for Paul, stretching back to 2016 when he first joined LERC. Such results over time have often led to him receiving 'honourable mentions', but without ever receiving the accolade.

In February, at the Dave Denton midweek 5k, his first PB of the year came. Then in April, he excelled at both ends of the scale as 5 seconds was knocked off his mile time, at the Bannister Mile; and a 3:38 debut Marathon at Manchester.

At Holme Pierrepont, in the Notts Summer League race, Paul broke his 5m PB for the second time in 2019; over 10k, Wadey again lowered his PB on more than one occasion, with new bests set at Newark and Wilne, ending 2019 with a PB 2 minutes better; and also PB'd over the rarely ran 4 mile distance at 'The Run'.

Towards the end of the year, Paul has focussed his efforts on cracking some elusive PB's, uncharacteristically racing less, but his commitment and sacrifice has paid off, with some corking results.

At Worksop half, at the very end of October, on a traditionally tough course, Paul just dipped under 1:38:00 for the first time and then carrying this form through November, was able to again set a new PB.

Whilst this is not entirely November specific, the Captain's Committee were unanimous in choosing Paul's final PB, as well as continued commitment to LERC and self-improvement, as more than worthy of the Runner of the Month award.

Congratulations Paul, on a cracking November and blinding 2019. Good luck in your quest to now go and smash a sub-20, we know you've got it in you!
