This Month’s Q&A with Chris Gibbs.

It’s quite possible that unless you have raced in the same races as Chris you may have only seen his name when looking at your weekly Strava results. His name is invariably nestled toward the top, usually between a few athletes that are at a training camp or cycling holiday. Of course if you’ve hung around until the end of any of our local triathlons you will remember this familiar figure collecting the age group trophies. This week (and for a change) I managed to catch up with the quiet man of Lincsquad and was keen for some motivational advice……….
You’ve won Lincsquads’ ‘Most motivated to Train’ Award for the last couple of years now. What’s your secret and how do you remain so motivated?

It’s with great pleasure that I had the chance to interview Sue Hoare, (Lincsquad’s very own Beryl Burton) for this month’s Q&A. You only have to see Sue at Sportives to realise that cycling has been a big influence in both her and late husband Donald’s life. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did. Read the rest of this entry »

Shona Cannings Great North Run – The Destination.

In true Lincsquad tradition any race has to involve camping so off we went up to the Toon in the rain. Kerry had given us all the info we needed so we were booked on a campsite close to the finish line in South Shields and set off in the rain on Sat. Once we hit the North East we started seeing the road closures signs and banners for the Great North Run and it became very real.

Shona Cannings Great North Run – The Journey

2nd August 2014 and I turned 49 I knew this was going to be a challenging year ahead. Youngest son Torin off to Uni so family life was changing forever. I also always had in my mind that I needed to do something special to celebrate reaching my half century – this was all the more important to me as my Dad died just a week before he reached 50 of an undiagnosed cardiac problem.
