Were wishing they were lucky
Or at least they weren`t in Kentucky
This report is for the parkrun from almost 5 years ago
We had 201 of you but no Albert and no Flo
And it was way too early for that fella who says ho ho ho
I hope it wasn`t as wet as it is today
We`d have needed a finish tunnel instead of a funnel
Yes,pass the crowbar,I`ve found another way to mention Sally Gunnell.
Hello,good morning,afternoon or evening and welcome to this week`s run report from the past,today it is.......The 24th October 2015,back in a time when we were all in different age categories. Good luck to everyone doing the virtual London marathon tomorrow and any other real or virtual races or just going for a run or not. Think that`s covered everyone.
Our first finisher (male) was (see if you can spot a theme in the top 3,no clues) Ieuan Kearney ,a first timer from Wirral AC in 16:59, then Arran Kearney of Wirral AC,another first timer,in 17:12 and our first finisher (female) Emily Kearney of Wirral AC was next with a new pb of 17:21,pretty sure that was our best ladies time at the time and is still the 2nd best time and only 9 seconds behind the best time today! The first non Kearney was Matthew Gawne of Altrincham and District AC in a new pb of 17:45.The next finisher (female) was Sarah Kearney of Wirral AC in a new pb of 18:08 (8th) and Lisa Grantham of Pensby Runners in 20:16 (27th).
1721,17:21 is our historical time/date today.A British government minister, the chancellor of the exchequer,was confined in the London Tower. Absolutely no comment on that.Not at all. Johan Sebastien Bach dedicated his Brandenburg Concertos to Christian Ludwig,Margrave of Brandenburg Schewdt and his and Prince Eugenius of Savoye unveiled a statue of himself and said "It`s not about me".
Congratulations to all our first timers on this day! We hope you enjoyed your Birkenhead parkrun experience,whether it was your first time evs at parkrun or were visiting the wonderful Wirral and our fantastic park.
