Great reports, Lit and Speedy.
Fantastic effort from you too Jools, I wanted to run that one but family life got in the way.
I ran Newbury parkrun this morning with plenty of people there to pay tribute to the guy who died in the London marathon as this was his local parkrun. Lots of people wearing coloured bands supporting his charity.
A minute silence before the start gave everyone a chance to reflect. On a beautiful sunny spring morning I was glad to be there able to do what I love, but also a little sad for the poor guy and his family. Life can be tough.
I shot off fairly hard into a strong headwind and managed 18.19 for 3rd place. 10 miles in total this morning.
