THE PAST MASTER

Running up that road.

Stazza’s Angel Liz “Looks could kill” Weeks (41) was in action at the British Masters 10K Road Championships at the Cyclopark, in Gravesend, Kent. The former-rat-racer-turned-full-time-PT/coach challenged top-flight runners to place fifth female overall and fourth F40, with a blistering 38:53!

Four rolling laps in the freezing cold and wind meant Liz had no thoughts of setting a new PB; this was pure racing at its finest.

Weeks told The Stable News: 

“It was good to be back racing in a competitive field and off a mass start, even though the four windy and undulating laps were tough.”

The Stable News got a hold of Coach Stazza and Ally “the Chin” Smith, who were on a weekend away in Ally’s homeland:

Ally: This is a crackin’ wee bothy, eh, Stazza? Wait till ye try this tattie soup ma missus made us! Better than that Michelin star shight you like. 

Stazza: Yes, this is a very authentic abode! Mmm, that soup is fantastic; what meat is in this? It’s very flavourful.

Ally: Pure, 100% steak slice, ma man! Only the best for us! 

Stazza: Ha-ha, I’m sure it is! Did you see Liz Weeks’ wonderful 10K at the British Masters? A hard-fought, well-paced run! Brilliant! 

Ally: Aye, she sure handled that course well. Fighting the wind and the constant ups and downs. Very well done to her! 

Stazza: Indeed. Let’s get this finished, as Take the High Road is on soon! 

The “Weekly Warrior”’s next showing will be on December 4 at the Kent Masters Cross-Country Championships. 

Good luck!
