Ferry Meadows parkrun #346

Welcome and well done to all those that got themselves out of bed on this blustery morning and conquered Ferry Meadows parkrun number 346. It was nice to see a big group of first timers to the park.

Firstly I would like to say a huge thank you to all the volunteers that come and make parkun possible especially with weather like today!

Today was particularly special for a couple of us this week. Firstly being my dad's (Richard Burton) birthday today so a huge happy birthday. Running his 147 run overall. Secondly it was both mine and his 5 year parkrun anniversary!

parkrun has definitely brought us together as a family and allows us to do something different together. We have also made some amazing friends along the way that will be life long friendships. So celebrating today with them made it extra special! Of course we had cake at the end.

Thank you to my lovely friend Claire Sibley for getting me round parkrun today with the quickest time since August last year due to injury.

Well done to our old mate Graham McMillan who some of you will know recently had a knee op and did a walking PB today! Keep up that fighting spirit you'll be back running with us in no time.

Lastly thank you parkrun for getting us up and out of bed and achieving.
