Another week of missing our favourite Saturday morning gathering and if you can believe it or not it’s week 8 of the Selfie Challenge.
I was out running a few times at Pomphrey over the past few weeks and it’s been brilliant bumping into some of you especially those of you donning Pomphrey Hill apricots.
We're now 7 weeks into (not)parkrun. This week 30 athletes completed 40 5k runs between them with an average time of 28:37. This can be absolutely any 5k you wish, as flat or as hilly as you want or can find. Recording a (not)parkrun is similar to a freedom run, but can be logged on any route - it doesn't have to be at Pomphrey Hill, or any other parkrun course. You simply log on to your profile and submit your own time. For more details, see the parkrun FAQ page.
This weeks results can be found at (not)parkrun.
11 of this week's athletes recorded a (not)parkrun PB, so well done to Derek McSweeney, Paula Adamson, Paul Taylor, Steven Burge, Dave G, Michael Francis, Phil Cossey, Barbara Sullivan, Nigel Jennings, Adrian Grimshaw, Catherine Parker.
We also had one newcomer to (not)parkrun, Simon Walker.
The Selfie Challenge: Up Pomphrey!!!!!
How could I start with anybody else! Even though his clackers may support an offensive Rovers badge I always have a smile on my face at every pass. I always miss him when he isn't stood here, I give you Steve Jenkins.
It’s me! If I look a bit sweaty, I am 8k into my Sunday run and only halfway through.
Janet writes: Steve was getting withdrawal symptoms so we took a trip out to Pomphrey to the top of the tarmac hill, so he could shake his clappers.
Lisa smiling in the sun, missing the sound of Steve and his clackers.
Big smiles as Lyndsey gets to the top of the tarmac.
Garry and Maleficent out on their usual walks. Picture was taken moments before Gary stole her umbrella in the rain to pose as Mary Poppins.
Our Adrian looking back at the view Steve would have on a normal Saturday morning.
Party at the top of the Hill with Barbara and co. I think I still hear her shouting "thanks Steve" on her (not) parkruns.
Richard getting his photo just in time and he hopes everyone is doing well, what a nice chap!
