Baby it’s cold outside.

At last we come to the time of year when we separate the parkrunners from the also ran's. With a gentle but cold breeze most of us volunteers lost the use of our fingers  through numbing cold by about 8:55h! But no matter, the parkrun went ahead. Although the cold weather thinned the herd down to the most committed park runners we were delighted with a field of 219 runners who braved the cold. These were not just the club runners who live to run and stride around the course like antelope. Also us mere mortal parkrunners who are just trying to burn off last night's chocolate biscuits showed up in large numbers. In my humble opinion its the getting out on a Saturday morning when you can, whatever the weather, that makes you a committed parkrunner. This morning I was proud to see so many of you out for your weekly dose of parkrun.

We will be running as normal on the Saturdays during the holidays and have a New Years parkrun at 10:00h 1/Jan/19. We will not be doing an event on Christmas day but I believe some local parkruns will happen on Christmas day so check their websites for details.

Until next time have a good few weeks .
