What a great morning with lovely lexi6 and Mr Lexi. It was a first time for me at Boston even though it is only about 45 mins away. A really nice course of 3 laps around the Country Park, starting with a run through the trees, then turning onto the old towpath along the river and back through trees at the end. Only 156 runners as well. I think the chap from Whitstable thought he’d come a long way until they mentioned our Lexi 😂 Then we toddled off to the Brewer’s Fayre for coffee, bacon buttie for me and omelettes for the lexis and a long chinwag! Lexi it was a delight meeting you. Enjoy the rest of your stay. VRBs a heads up that Wilmslow parkrun is next on her list 🏃♀️🏃♀️
VRB meet up at Boston parkrun : What a great... - Bridge to 10K
Well done to you all. Sounds like you had a wonderful morning.
Great leggings ladies! How lovely to catch up with the lexis Sandie and well done for getting out of bed earlier to get to Boston. VRB meet ups are the best.
Hoping to catch up with a few in the New Forest tomorrow but there will be thousands of runners there!
Thanks Dexy, my leggings were my bigger pair (after sampling all the local cuisine and beverages, I was worried they wouldn’t fit 😅 although there’s still 3 weeks left to fill them) I had a wonderful time with Sandi1961 New Forest sounds like a lot of fun, especially meeting VRB’s
Lovely pic! Sounds like a great run and nice to meet up with VRBs. ☺
Well done on the run and fun. I should be up in Boston Oct/Nov to see family so could well give it a whirl.
Ooh, let me know when and I’ll try to come down again!
That is such a lovely photo of you and lexi6 Sandie. I’m so glad you guys were able to meet up and have a lovely run! 🏃♀️🏃♀️🏃♀️🏃♀️
It was just great cheekychipmunks, perfect weather and a lovely course and company. At breakfast got to watch how all the results are collated before they are posted online ( he was sitting at the next table) really fascinating stuff. Back in NZ I’ve never been for coffee after parkrun always too tomato red and sweaty, but breakfast with Baddiethepirate and Runningroni in Marple and now Sandi the idea is starting to grow on me, bit more than the idea starting to grow on me, but thats another story 🏀 🚶🏼♀️
It was lovely! We discovered that we also have a common interest in family history, so I have now got a free website to research my family tree further 😃
No way! Amazing. 👏👏
Yes, one of the things they are doing while they are here is delving into the past. So fascinating!
Ditto Sandi1961 what a lovely morning and so brilliant to meet you. Funny driving up from different directions and arriving at the same time, parking next to each other! Lovely parkrun and even better company. Loved our brekkie and natter. Hope you have a wonderful time next week. Now all I need is to win our Lotto and head back next October for a run in Ireland. 🙂🍀🏃♀️🏃♀️🏃♂️🏃♂️🏃♀️🏃♀️🤞
That really was a good run today for you all, meeting Lexi6 from New Zealand would make your run all the better.
I am a happy laddie as well, this morning at Dunfermline parkrun I got a PB of 32.01, the only disappointment was that no one was handing out any jellybabies after the 🏃 😊 run.
Brilliant run, Wow! what a great time. I was considerably slower than you today AlMorr but loved my run today. I just can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning. 👍🏃♀️🏃♀️🏃♂️🏃♂️ Although jelly babies would have been nice. 😀
Excellent conditions today. Well done Sandie and Mrs and Mr lexi6 😁

The weather was just perfect - about 13C, sunny with a few clouds, coolish breeze! No PR but that wasn’t the point 😃
I am glad it worked out and it sounds a lovely run.
Sounds like a great experience Sandie and lexi6 . Yes any parkrun tourist would have struggled to trump your NZ! 😀
It was funny though JohnathanP a couple came up to us after our run and said they had visited New Zealand and done 3 parkruns there. Up until now I’ve only ever done my local parkrun, so I have some serious catching up to do. Can’t wait.
They were very keen to tell you how much they live NZ weren’t they? 😂
I think Coddfish has also done parkruns in NZ so not that uncommon!
I seem to remember? scary Dunedin was one
Yes - over a 4 week stay I manage to organise my travel to complete Lower Hutt, Blenheim and scary Dunedin. I also ran the Hayley Park course but not at parkrun (couldn’t get that one to coincide with a Saturday).
Next time I come to the UK (🤞) I think I’ll book you as my travel agent. Such organisation to take in parkruns very impressive Coddfish 👍
What a nice event And what nice Runners
Well done all
Thanks John. Now to persuade Lexi to come back for the GC meet up!
Sounds like the perfect morning x
Wonderful meetup and run all of you!
It must be so nice to support and actually run with forum friends.
Lovely photo! 😊xxx
