Yesterday's parkrun was on my 35th Birthday so below is a dedication to the number 35.
Yesterday's parkrun should have been event number 135...however we put on two extra events (Christmas Day and New Years Day) so it bumped it up to 137.
7 people completed their 35th parkrun. So Well Done Paul Trott, Terry Moore, Mel Maloney, Donna Davy, Mel Seddon, Elaine Chapelhow and Taraminda Parry.
Mark Miller collected token number 35 this week.
The 35th female to finish was Cath Austin whilst the 35th male to finish was Marc Miller.
The 35 minute pacer was the lovely Louise Bridges.
14 people completed their parkrun within the 35th minute so Hello and Well Done to Liz Macenri, Marie Bowers, Louise Bridges, Nadine Ricketts, Pam Beeby, Ian West, Emmeline White, Emily Hassan, Anita Titcombe, Caroline Ward, Biddy Russell, Denise Wardle, Sally Cope and Sarah Rodgers.
Steve Bradley, David Guyett-Smith, Matt Earp, Stewart Thomson, Michael White, Kendrick Mallard, and Natalie Keyte all finished with a time ending in 35 seconds.
There were 25 runners today in the 35-39 age category. I was the newest member to this group.
6 of the people that ran yesterday have a PB of 35:XX so a virtual high 5 to Ann-Marie Bonwick, Michael Bowers (a special thank you as well for being my pacer yesterday), Vicky Marshall, Caroline Ward, Lydia Maher and Sean Lynch.
It was somewhere around the 35 minute mark that I turned around at The Shack and my Birthday balloon made a bid for freedom! I hope it enjoyed its journey over to the Isle of Wight!
A big thank you to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday during the run but more importantly, and as always, a big thank you to all the volunteers who helped the parkrun happen. If it weren't for the volunteers the run wouldn't happen, so please, if you're well overdue a turn at volunteering email in and come and help! You'll not regret it.
