Whilst 20 Fenland Running Club members were having their annual social Three Counties 10-Mile Run from Rver Road (Norfolk) on the East bank of the River Nene, via Sutton Bridge (Lincolnshire) to Gypsy Lane on the West bank (Cambridgeshire), Sam Lyddiatt was flying the FRC flag in Barbados taking on a Half Marathon in the Run Barbados Marathon Weekend. On a clear, sunny but frosty cold day in the UK on flat Fenland trails, Sam ran at the same time as club colleagues in the UK but contended with hot and humid running conditions in Barbados. With an undulating out and back loop starting in the capital Bridgetown, running out of the city alond the west coast, Sam grabbed the opportunity of an amazing Half Marathon experience whilst in Barbados with her husband Pete to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary.
