Happy Christmas everyone. As 2019 comes to a close I too am starting to wind down. Mentally and physically I am exhausted and need the time off. But it was a great year, I’ve ran all but 2 weeks over the whole year. And last week was 1 of them as I was driving a lot with work and not getting home until late.
I lost 2 stone in weight in 2019. I got my parkrun 50 milestone this year and proudly wore my 50 T-Shirt at my 59th parkrun this morning. I achieved a new parkrun PB this year, going from my previous parkrun PB of 31:04 which I got in 2017 to 25:36 in August this year. I also loved my weekend in Bristol with my Son and parkrun running Buddy as we ran Eastville parkrun ticking off another course on the compass challenge. As a bonus we also met some lovely VRB’s and I look forward to meeting them again in Portrush in 2020. I’m looking forward to running my first Christmas Day parkrun and I’m also going to attempt a New Years Day Double. I’ve ran a few 5K and 10K road races plus a 13K mountain race.
I am looking forward to the 2020 challenges. I plan to work hard to go sub 25 at parkrun, get my 100 milestone and 25 volunteering milestone plus run a few 5K, 10K road races and the mountain race again in November.
I wish you all a very happy Christmas and best wishes to you all on your 2020 running goals. I love this forum as it keeps me motivated and is populated by the nicest people.
