It's all about Mr German this week...............
In case anyone missed his BBC Somerset interview, Dave completed his 100th Parkrun on Saturday! Well done Dave! 65 of these have been at Montacute and he has also been a tourist at 7 other Parkruns; mainly in the South West. Many of us shadowed Dave and enjoyed experiencing the support he was given all the way round the route. Even though he ran quite a few extra metres this week, high-fiving the marshals as he went, Dave achieved his best Montacute time this year by an impressive 32 seconds. I think he focussed on the cake that was waiting for us. Thank you Jackie, Sally and Michelle, much appreciated.
This week is also about Montacute Parkrun. Including 13 Langport Runners, there were a huge 443 runners this week; the highest ever total of runners this event has ever seen.
Liz and Jack topped the percentages this week, 70+% is extremely impressive. Our next centurion will be Sue, currently on 92. End of October maybe?
Out-trumped by Dave this week, but not to be forgotten, is Mike's PB; a notable 8 seconds off his previous best. Well done Mike. Also good to see Katy's return to Parkrun. She achieved a mere 4 seconds off her best time; good running! Dave and Abby were back running together and it looks like Dennis has found his running legs again after all that cycling (LEJOG).
Note: Next week, Saturday 2nd September, is Montacute's 4th birthday. The theme is "hats, caps and silly wigs".
