parkrun pause #49 (20th Feb 2021)

(This contains lots of tables, photos and the like - you may want to paste the link into a grown up browser like Chrome as it'll look better)

Where's all the usual wordy words? The clever quips? The long rambling passages of gibbering nonsense, interspersed with facts, numbers, history and a smattering of humour?

Well fear ye not my fine furry friends. I recorded all of that in a similarly rambling, gibbering nonsense of a narrated YouTube video where I essentially read this entire run report out for you.

(Yes, yes, I know, I've got both microphones on so it all sounds very echoey and in my rush I didn't properly set the scene so it's all slightly shifted to the right! All fixable next time!)

It's great to see Martin back to running fitness and Treasure Hunting again! Nice smiley face but you went waaaay too tall! ;-)

Victoria wrote, "Toby and I have loved being out enjoying this lovely weather today. Finally much warmer and back in shorts and T-shirts for running!!! :-) The flowers are snowdrops (well it has to be..... there’s so many out and about)!!! Enjoy your weekend."

LOL, Doritos and Red Wine Mr Bedlow! Clearly you have very high hopes for the Great Notley Country Park cafe when it re-opens ;-)

So far it looks like Michelle has the largest puddle I've seen so far, alas no bonus points :-(
Great socially distanced post run cuppa with Mum photo though!
2021_02_21_12_28_13_804

We can't see your sleeves Guy but we know full well which top you're wearing! Lovely to see a V25 out there! Hopefully it won't be too long before we can all start volunteering again and we can all wear our V25 shirts!
parkrun Treasure Hunt February 20 2021

Team Hawkins! Only scored points for their puddle and their selfies! I wonder what this will do to the February scores? Next week is the last week of the February 2021 league!

I've yet to try this mystical food that is Marmite and Cheese, alas no bonus points for this - even though it was in a groovy wholemeal pitta!
20210220_131350

Oooh no Emma, Hannah and Jacob! Weren't you too warm in that?
They wrote, "So here’s our stash... That is a giant puddle that we found between Pebmarsh and Colne Engaine...
Post park run snack was daddy’s birthday cake!!
" ... Happy Birthday Dad!
So far, this is the first Footpath Sign we've come across from the Treasure Hunters we've scored so far!

I was so tempted to change the backdrop of your photo Tony to "your corner". All being well, you'll be at your corner soon enough!

Whilst your post (not)parkrun snack didn't earn you any bonus points, it was my favourite!
152351309_150265630258207_8135722786046086655_n

A scarf Paula!? I'm wondering if you live near Emma, Hannah and Jacob in some sort of chilly bubble ;-)
_20210221_141617

Vanessa! Cool Hedgehog! Good to see the little fella is out and about!

Jane wasn't wearing a scarf! She wrote, "Puddle in a pothole- strangely enough I didn't have to look too far to find one! The sun was shining so much there's even a reflection of me and my little toes are peeking in at the bottom! Post run snack was some [carrot cake emoji] muffins - straight from the Darraline show! Beautiful spring flowers of which there are snowdrops and primroses because I forgot about the 'taller than me' thing so I had to dash outside and take a picture of the telegraph pole in the dark - we have no streetlights The selfie is definitely a daytime shot with get this - bare arms in February, it really was that warm! ~Jane~"
Sadly no bonus points for your dazzling array of baked goods! (I'm off to compare if I've scored you more points in past weeks than you did...!)

And finally, Wifey Paula, who doesn't get any bonus points for sending in her Treasure Haul LAST! I mean really, there's no excuse - she's sat TWO FEET away on the other sofa! Hold on a sec', is that a photo of me in the background embracing the lovely surrounding countryside!?...

When will parkrun be starting?
There were announcements this week with regards to the end of social distancing, the lockdown and something that's approaching a return to "normality".

Click here to jump to that bit of the video to hear me talking about how to find about parkrun's roadmap and return to normality.

I really enjoyed making the little run report slide deck and talking through it with you. There was a lot of chuckling to myself as I made it. Don't be expecting a groovy video every week! Click here to jump to my closing bit in the video.

Take care out there chums and hang in there. Stick to the rules and we'll be coming out the other side and we'll be back in the park before you know it!
