The one where we tried not to start early - sorry!
Back to usual form despite 16months to change my style, I will start by talking about the weather. Thank you to the parkrun weather fairy for giving us a lovely sunny morning for event number 360. A huge shout out to the volunteers this week who were awesome and had already started setting up before most of us had arrived at PP, or even thought about waking up!

If you fancy giving our pink hi-viz a try, please get in touch via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), facebook or twitter - we would love to hear from you and full instructions provided, no throwing in the deep end here!
It still feels so great to be back and I don't think the novelty will wear off for a while yet. And we get to do it again next week!
We had 414 runners this week, of whom 14 were first time ever parkrunners - welcome to the family, we can't wait to have you back again! And welcome to the 39 visitors to PP from other parkrun events, we hope you will come back to visit again soon. 51 people ran a PB with us this morning - amazing!
Congratulations to David RAYNER who joined the 100 club and Sarah RHYS who joined the 50 club with us this week. The milestone t-shirt process is changing slightly, see the latest update from HQ.
Thank you all for joining us this morning, there really isn't a better way to start the weekend. Just a gentle reminder please that you need to have a physical printed barcode - we cannot accept barcodes from phones. You can either print these from your parkrun profile (link in your results email) or you can invest in tags, credit card sized cards or wristbands. Please don't let this be a barrier to your participation, if you need help with access to a printer, let us know and we can help.
Same time, same place next week?
