A cool an overcast morning greeted us all at the park to welcome 104 runners with 6 Brundall first timers including 2 people partaking in their premier parkrun perambulation!
Despite Met Office predictions of heavy rain arriving at 10am the fabulous parkrun weather fairies kept it dry not just until the tailwalker had finished but also almost until the last bit of post parkrun prattle had passed our lips.
The running conditions were actually pretty perfect as proved by almost 1/3 of our runners who are enjoying a lovely new PB (possibly whilst simultaneously wondering how on earth they will be able to go faster). In no particular order, huge congratulations to Morgan TAYLOR-SMITH; Paul QUADLING; Ed WEST; Mark QUADLING; Stephanie HARRISON; Gemma SNAPE; Christopher HAGG; Chris JOHNSON; Stephen KENWORTHY; Russell HEATH; Paul MAGEE; Joshua HOLMES; Chantelle HOLMES; Kieran DAVIS; David BRYAN; Steve BALDWIN; Sam KENT; Alistair HALLS; Andrew RICHARDSON; Scott WILLIAMS; Ella WHARTON; Ralph LAMBERT-JOHN; Rachel FULLER; Maddie TYE; John CHAPMAN; Teresa SOLOMON; Tracy CHAPMAN; Graham EDMOND; Cathy CONNELL; Nicky TALBOT; Tallulah CANFOR-WOOD
Massive thanks to all of the High-Vis heroes who turned up on Saturday so that our runners could start their weekends in the best way possible and a proper Brundall welcome to Livia who is going complete the volunteering part of her DofE award with us at parkrun
Don’t forget to dust of your bandanas/buffs/muffs/snoods/scarfs to help us celebrate our 4th Birthday in honour of our ex ED “Captain” Phil Henry who went on permanent shore leave from HMS Brundall to start up Lingwood parkrun and become a parkrun ambassador.
Phil probably owns nearly enough bandanas to outfit almost everyone running at Brundall in any given week but still hasn't spoiled us with a pyramid of Ferrero Rocher!
See you all next week on parkrunday for a bountiful bonanza of bandanas, some fabulous cakes, event number 197 and our 4th Birthday.
