a snowy pre-Christmas parkrun

 We ummed and ah'd about whether to go ahead this morning, but in the end Rick and Kerry went down to check out the park and we went for it.

We were joined in the inch or so of the cold, white stuff by 10 die hard runners, Bob Wishart, a regular at Newcastle parkrun joined us sporting his vest, shorts and the all important 'bah humbug' hat.

Glad that the runners outnumbered the marshalls we headed down to the start, drew a line in the snow for the start line and set them off at 9am prompt after a warning about not lobbing snowballs at marshalls or other parkrunners. 

All 10 runners finished without any broken bones, stopping to build snowmen or skating across the frozen lake.

Big thanks to all runners and volunteers this morning, I think I left my toes in the ice :o(

See you all at parkrun on Christmas day morning, don't forget your flasks and mince pies!
