Hello Everyone, Just to let you know that this morning I ran for all those VRBs whose parkrun was cancelled due to adverse weather conditions. No snow here, just beautiful blue sky and bright sunshine, but with the northerly wind it was jolly cold 🥶. That could be why there was less than 400 there, after our record numbers of the last month.
I ran with my hat, gloves, winter running top and a fleece and I didn’t feel the need to remove any layers along the way. There was ice where puddles had frozen over so all runners were warned that today was not the day for a PB . Marshals were dispatched to stand next to the worst ice patches and I could hear UpTheStanley shouting “keep left” at runners before I saw him in his hi-viz vest.
No amazing PB for me this week because I borrowed a few snails at the start, but I was first in my age range again (32:55) . The parkrun website is down so I can’t check whether I was the only one! I was glad to see the consistent pace with negative splits and despite the cold I really enjoyed the run without music.
So lovely to meet up with Mr and Mrs Coddfish again, after their West Country tourism and admired Mr Coddfish’s new Brooks GTS 19 running shoes . Mine are on order! I think we can definitely call ourselves real runners when we need the 2nd pair of shoes . 👟👟
Have a lovely day everyone and if you can’t get out today, there’s always the rugby to watch. 🏉 🏴 🇮🇹 🏴 🇮🇪
