Well done PTD.
Nick - thats tough luck.
Tim - Thats a cracking time considering the wine! You should also try the Marathon du Medoc - more of the same
We celebrated our first parkrun birthday on Saturday. Was great fun, we invited Martin and Liz Yelling who were kind enough to present some awards and were generally very lovely people with loads of time to talk with runners. It was a shame I was busy Event/Run Directing, cake cutting and results processing! But the important thing was everyone had a good time. 261 finishers, a record by over 80! So all in all came away from the day feeling particularly smug. Then chilled for the day with too many ciders and a dominos pizza. It was so bad but soooooo good!
Had a cheeky 8 miler on Sunday and finished it feeling good. A 4 miler today in alien territory was a bit weird though. I'm sure I ran through the Tamworth equivilent of the Chatsworth. But all good. Got a canal route planned for tomorrow. Travelling for work and being away from the missus sucks sometimes, but at least I get to run in some different places!
Rich - how goes the injury? Is finishing still the main goal or have things improved?
