Seed Run is my favourite night of the month. I guess it is the combination of endorphin release, alcohol and sharing the weird and wonderful journey of starting a business. I always wake up happy after a Seed Run night.
We started off at a gentle pace as our previous winners Ed, Will and Orlando were all injured (at least I assume it must have been injury as why else would they not be there?). Little did we know we had an international athlete in the form of Yonatan Malka in our midst (8th in the 2009 Triathlon Asia Cup). After politely adopting the pace of the front group, Yonatan tore through the field and cruised in 1st at a leisurely (for him) 4min/km.
A special shout out for Dima Pimakhov (Go Solo) who came all the way from Brighton. He saw we were raising money for Ukraine and as Dima is from Kiev, he wanted to make the effort to join us. On that note, well done everyone: we raised £450 for the $1K PROJECT which connects donors directly with Ukrainian families impacted by the war.
Have a great break over Christmas. We will be back out running towards the end of January. Look out for the email. Looking forward to catching up with you all then.
