Southsea parkrun #273 15/12/18

Well, what a day to do parkrun, it was absolutely pouring with rain and the wind was whipping it into everyone's faces. You couldn't even see the Isle of Wight for the mist. On turning up at the start line, we still found a cheery band of volunteers, who were massing and being briefed as to their duties which lifted our spirits as they do each parkrun morning.

Kev, our RD for the day gave a big thank you to the volunteers who gave up their time to ensure that we were able to run this morning. There were certainly a cheery band of Marshalls out on the extremely well marked out course, all supporting by giving encouragement and clapping. Don't forget if you are unable to run, have a race coming up or are just generally a good egg, then volunteering is a great way to give back to the parkrun community. Head over to the Southsea parkrun webpage for details of the next few weeks roster and sign up for a position that suits you- you get to wear a hi- vis jacket! -what more incentive do you want?

There were lots of milestones this morning, George and Daniel were celebrating their 100 and Dan his 200th. He was very brave (and red with cold!) at the start line as he was wearing a blond wig and a very short wedding dress, which he had tried to attach to himself with Sellotape
