Jonathan Broad - Winner of Summer Running blog competition

Polar HR monitor

Congratulations to Jonathan Broad (handicap 13.9) whose short story about his summer running adventure, in Sweden, won our Summer Running blog competition.

Jonathan described his intrepid (but somewhat naive) run that took him through a Swedish forest that is inhabited by animals bigger and faster then him! Jonathan  will shortly receive a Polar FT4 heart rate monitor. We wonder if he will get his maximum heart rate whilst fleeing dangerous situations in the future!
