Stratford upon Avon Parkrun - Saturday 9th November 2019

(Excuse the quote, funnily enough there arenโ€™t many Shakespeare quotes to do with running ๐Ÿ˜‚)

So we leave the hilly, trail shoe fest, BBC Pride & Prejudice location of Lyme Park, for the flat as a pancake, mainly tarmac, โ€˜get your 5k PB hereโ€™, delights of Stratford upon Avon. If you can join us then you will get to see this view of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre 3 times during your parkrun, going around the Recreation Ground and along the banks of the Avon over 3 laps. I canโ€™t guarantee it will be this gorgeous and tranquil but you never know!

We are hoping to have the usual suspects: cheekychipmunks, Sandie1961, Dexy5, UpTheStanley and Windoze who will be joining Katnap with his latest C25k groupโ€™s graduation run.

It would be lovely if you could join us!

Wouldnโ€™t miss it ๐Ÿ˜ƒ VRBs please come and cheer for my bestest friend Nikki (who I met as a Girl Guide on a trip to Switzerland in 1975 ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฑ) who will be one of the C25k graduands ๐ŸŽ“

Wow what a coincidence.

Well sort of! Nikki challenged me to do a 50k bike ride with her if she did C25k. As she lives in Stratford I put her in contact with Katnap. My bike has so far been to Halfords for a service, having languished in the garage for 10 years ๐Ÿ˜‚

Oh if only I was not going away for November-December - I have friends down there and I would have loved to join you all (flat sounds good ๐Ÿ‘Œ).

But good luck to everyone and enjoy ๐Ÿ˜Š hope the weather is kind - will join you somewhere next year?!?

Thanks Carowood, thatโ€™s a shame but weโ€™re there most weeks if youโ€™re ever in the area ๐Ÿ‘

Sadly this one is out of my regular Saturday morning range as Iโ€™m tethered to Stockport until 7:50am or Iโ€™d be there!

Obviously Little Miss UNM will need to visit at some point though, itโ€™ll bring her English Lit to life, so we will come run this one eventually.

Have a great one everybody... and tell those new grads well done from me.

TailChaser
TailChaserGraduate10 in reply to UnfitNoMore

Will do UNM! Let us know when youโ€™re coming down ๐Ÿ‘

Hi TailChaser! Dexy5 mentioned your meet-up while we were having coffee earlier (but no cake๐Ÿ˜‡!). As Iโ€™ll be staying in Redditch the night before I thought I might join you if thatโ€™s OK. After all you all need to see just how slow, slow running can be!

TailChaser
TailChaserGraduate10 in reply to Oldgirlruns

Brilliant OG, Iโ€™ll add you to our chat! I think our tailwalkers come in at 50 minutes to an hour. After seeing how slow I could run for 45 minutes last week, Iโ€™ve developed a bit respect for slow runners - itโ€™s really hard work! I forgot mention our refreshments table at the end of our parkrun - it creaks with cake, biscuits and fruit! It will be great to meet you ๐Ÿ˜€
