We got the sporting weekend of to an excellent start at Clair run #261. Lovely sunshine, a great turnout, and a mass of PBs – 16 no less, in what must have been some kind of localised performance harbinger for the outstanding result that followed from Samara! Well done to all. Next week we shall run in waistcoats.
It’s always great to welcome parkrun first timers, and there were four this week at Clair. Please do come back and cement an addiction to this wonderful institution. All you need to do is recite this thought as you slumber in your bed on a Saturday morning: ‘I think I’m going to take it slow this week’. By 10am you’ll be basking in the parkrun feel-good-factor.
Alternatively you can volunteer and feel good about that. parkrun only happens through the stewardship of volunteers, and throwing your hat into the ring occasionally is a great way to give something back.
Talking of volunteering, we had a ‘25’ milestone for a young lady whose name I wish I knew to thank her properly through this note. One of those new style parkrun T-shirts with the attractive slub-weft (in purple) is yours to claim.
Don’t forget it’s our fifth birthday on 21st July. In the meantime, all we can do now is wait for Wednesday to pass well. Have a great week.
