Three Parkrun milestones are approaching: Richard and Maggie are heading towards 50 and Mike towards his 100th. Let us know where/when you aim to run these milestones (if you want company). Also, please do remember to send Mike/me some information to add to these reports. Photos or descriptions of a course you have touristed is very welcome and will enhance these reports.
The heaven's opened at Street bang on 9am for Nick, me, Richard and Mike and didn't not stop throughout the whole run. Infact, it got heavier and very cold. The 'corridor' between the two field and the corners became increasingly muddly and slippy every lap. Always thankful to the volunteers, this week they were particularly stoic. Brian was handing out tokens and Martin there as always. There was a collection for the local food bank at the Harvest Church.
By the look of the photographs, another very wet course and a couple of very wet Parmenters over at Longrun.
Similar at Montacute where Sue (topping the table), Andy, William, Amanda Bigger, Amanda & Samantha Perrin elected to run. Especially well done to William achieving a 28 second PB on such a soggy course. I spotted a photo of Jean, but wondered why she didn't initially appear in the results. She tells me she had a challenging morning: late to park, a need for the "Little girl's room" for most of the run, a run back to the car to retreive her barcode and then the result wasn't recorded. Maybe the scanner was suffering in the damp conditions. I will add her result once the core team have looked into this. Her time was just over 37 minutes. ~ This is now added.
On her 46th Parkrun, Maggie touristed the furthest away - at Wanstead Flats, East London.
You will see a special line at the bottom of this week's table, Mary Smith. Mary is Jen's mum and completed her first recorded Parkrun this week at Shepton Mallet. What a great time and percentage (she should really have been top of our table!). Jen tells me she achieved the Vet Course Record and she plans to train weekly now, with sub 50 as her aim. Watch this space.....
Keep an eye on the Christmas/New Year Compendium list of Parkruns. The teams are starting to decide if they are putting on these extra runs; note the differing times too. For instance, you could do the 'double' on New Year's Day - 8.30 at Shepton and 10.30 at Yeovil:
