50 Parkruns ✔️

I ran my first Parkrun on 20th May 2017 and today completed my 50th! I didn’t manage a PB but was only 3 seconds off last week’s PB so not too disappointed. I know my name was announced at the start but was still surprised when a few people congratulated me on my 50 runs.

It was a lovely morning for a milestone run. Slightly chilly to start but the sun shone and with very little breeze it made for perfect running conditions.

I look forward to Parkrun every week, it’s a wonderful event with all ages, shapes and ability levels taking part. Having also volunteered a few times and seen it from a different perspective I recommend it to anyone who hasn’t yet dipped their toe in.

I hope all you Parkrunners had a good morning and well done to anyone else celebrating a milestone run!

If you get in early to the roster in Southsea you can do both on the same day Al. Stanley and I ran, them sorted the tokens back in order. 2 ticks on the same day 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️

Thanks! Volunteering is nearly as much fun as running but nowhere near as exhausting!

Well done Wizziewood . Did you do fancy dress or carry a balloon? It takes about 6 weeks for your red 50 shirt to arrive - when it does you can wear it with pride.

I totally agree with you, parkrun is my favourite run of the week. I only graduated this May but I’ve done 13 runs and 4 volunteers. Not sure which t-shirt I’ll earn first.

Here’s to your 100th👍

Thank you! No fancy dress I'm afraid, it's as much as I can do to run in ordinary running gear without adding weight or windage!

Thanks! You'll loose count for a few weeks and then before you know it you'll have done the other 48 ... good luck!

I can’t wait to earn a tee shirt so I’ll keep at it! I marshalled last week too, and that was amazingly good fun! Hope to start a collection of tee shirts eventually!

Good luck on your quest for the big 100! 😀

Thanks! Yes, loads of kms! One day I’ll sit down and work out how many kms I’ve run since starting C25k ... then I’ll treat myself to some new running shoes!
