As expected rain turned up on time for today's Parkrun, but on my way down to Parkrun I was quite optimistic, the sun was poking through the clouds and the wind wasn't as bad as I thought. However no sooner did Parkrun start, the wind and rain came down with a vengeance, the first mile saw the wind and rain blowing direct into our faces and did slow things down a little.
I was pleased with my run even with the challenging conditions, and at the finish line most of the runners I talked too were unperturbed by the wind and rain. What a hardy bunch runners are eh! Or are we just obsessed with getting out running? 😊
Happy with my time today and very pleased as I came second in my age group for the second week running, one day, just one day, I might be the fastest in my age group, if only! 😂 Time for my run was 26.28 with a pace of 8.34/mile and came 52 out of 121 runners. Have a great weekend all!
