Overcast, drizzly, gloomy, grey, leaden skies, muddy, soggy, grim, miserable – all suitable descriptors for the last Saturday’s weather! However, such adversity definitely brings out the best in our hardcore runners and volunteers and last weekend was no different. The bigger the puddles the bigger the smiles, the muddier the legs the buzzier the post run buzz!
Hats off to our wonderful volunteers who once again donned their wellies and ensured a safe, squelchy and enjoyable parkrun morning was had by all.
One of (if not THE) greatest advocate of the Colwick mud was in his element and was so successful in his puddle hopping this week that he left not a single inch of leg flesh uncovered by mud. If we were on a tour bus we would imagine the commentary would sound something like ‘and immediately in front of you is Super Kev socialising in his natural habitat fresh from his weekly wallow in the mud’.
Obviously Kev needs no convincing of the attributes of a colwick mud-bath and we were delighted to see that our new graduates from the Hospitals Couch to 5k group were seemingly just as at home on their first visit to Colwick and will surely be back for more! Well done to all of you, and thanks for the lovely cake!
Roll on next parkrun day, may the weather be miserable and the smiles plentiful
