Is to take your barcode. Hubby and I were excited about doing Parkrun this morning as it was his 50th. I pinned a “Big 50” banner on his vest and we took everything we needed for during and after the run, or so we thought. It was when they were explaining where the funnel was and where the barcode scanning was that the penny dropped, my barcode on a lanyard was still hanging on the wardrobe door. I decided I was still going to do it and I’d find out my position even if it wasn’t recorded .
The fast runners sped off and from the back I set Strava and played the theme from Chariots of Fire. Very inspirational. I was going to walk for a few minutes but the photographer was at the start this week so I started trotting straight away. I had walked to the prom so I decided I was warmed up.
I ran for 4k then decided to walk for .5k so that I could run in. It was at this point that hubby arrived to get the front door key off me. Having completed his run, he intended to run home to get his bar code (and mine he found out). What a pair! This is what happens when you pass 60!
I set off running again and went all the way to the finishing line. When I finally extricated my phone from the armband , logged in and stopped Strava, I’d done 40:40. Is there a way of avoiding losing time like this?
Hubby ran back before the last runners came in so we were able to hand in our tokens. What a hero 🏃♂️
Parkrun had me down as 40:50 and 366 out of 385.
Yippee my 1st solo Parkrun since IC and I’m very pleased with that.
Hubby then volunteered us to put 385 tokens in order, which is no mean feat! So I managed to get recorded for both running and volunteering on the same day.
It was a hot one today but I loved it! I seem to have been drinking water ever since.
