A grey morning in Southsea but another terrific run. 314 of you lovely people turned up to run today with 45 First timers and a whacking 82 new personal bests.
Great volunteering team today, a good mix of experienced volunteers and first timers. Volunteering really is a great experience, if you haven't tried it I would certainly recommended it - I would say this as a run director(!) but it really does give you a different view of parkrun and our lovely running community in Southsea.
Southsea parkrun stalwart Eric de Greef took the newbies briefing today, thank you for this Eric.
It was good to see a Run Director from Andover running today, it's always great to chat with the team from the different parkrun's and trade stories. We do always seem to get the same comment however "It's very flat here isn't it!", it sure is!
I was sad to see one of our runners pull up today, he was really flying. Fingers crossed that this isn't anything serious and you'll be back running soon. Thank you to all of you who asked about his well being on your way round today.
I've rambled on enough, enjoy your weekends all, until next week!
