Congratulations Mark Vaughan - NHRR Squirrel of the Month for January 2020
Kit secretary Mark lives and breathes kit, it’s a passion or perhaps some might say even an obsession.
As expected, he leads by example when it comes to being kitted out for race day. Another passion is cross country so the culmination of kit and cross country at the Herts County Cross Country Champs made for an ideal day out.
Mark turned up to race as expected exceptionally turned out in full North Herts Road Runner attire. Bobbly hat check, branded jacket check, race shoes check, even a fully branded North Herts Road Runner Marquee check. However, even this super-efficient and organised kit obsessive can get it wrong. Looking super nifty pre-race Mark reaches in to his kit bag (probably branded) to find he didn’t pack his vest but instead packed fellow kit secretary and wife Sue’s vest. Being the ultimate professional, he just donned his wife’s vest and raced.
You’ll need to ask Mark if this kit blip impacted his race performance on the day or if he found the ladies cut slightly liberating.
