Happy Birthday Comets!
It's Comet Club's 1st Birthday on the 26th November! We're having a Comet Cake made to celebrate our first birthday on Wednesday week, complete with a sparkler on top. One year ago on a dark cold November evening Ian Johnson, lead run coach and I stood at Stompond Lane in the dark learning how to put the floodlights on around the track,,,,,,, and we waited...... one young athlete turned up with his mum. Slightly demoralising at the time. How times change. Less than one year on we've come a long way on the journey. We've now got four coaches (including me), a great bunch of young athletes and their parents and the club is Rocketing! Last week we had 8 racing at Hillingdon Duathlon and 21 athletes, three coaches and a gallery of proud parents at the track on Wednesday last. We'de welcome back any youngsters who tried us out in the early days and newcomers are welcome. We're looking forward to sharing the cake!. And here's the cake below peoples!
