Wyre Forest parkrun #165 Sasha’s Run Report

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 165
10th November 2018

We have another guest run report writer this week, ten year old Sasha GUEST. You may remember her sister Aneka's run report from a few weeks ago... well this one is equally brilliant! Here's what Sasha has to say:

My name is Sasha Guest and I am 10 years old. This week I ran and got a time of 35.34 – not my best time but I had a stich. It is really freaky but my identical twin sister Aneka GUEST who was walking the Post Event Close Down with my mum, also got a stich at the same time!

My dad Keith GUEST got 35.41 but as Aneka mentioned in her earlier report, he keeps eating the Christmas cakes he has been making for Christmas and that is slowing him down. He said he got a bad time because he waited for me but I am not sure. Ha ha ha.

Peter CARTWRIGHT got another great time of 23.56. The Latte and croissants he always has after the run keep him going. We always go for breakfast afterwards in a big group.

Matt SUTTON you are definitely getting better. Do you think the sneaky extra run in the week is helping? Are you trying to beat anyone in particular!!!! He he he.

Sandra HOWARD well done at 38.17. Mum says she will try and keep up with you next week.

Gill JONES and Debbie HYRONS walked this week because they were doing a big run on Sunday – hope you both did well. Mum says your times are getting so good.

Jan LAW has just come back to parkrun and she decided to walk this time. I think she had too many clothes on as she was boiling as she crossed the line. She won’t do that next week when she runs.

Aneka Guest said it was good doing the Post Event Close Down as you start walking with the tail Walker which was Sharon JEPSON and as you get further you pick up lots of volunteers who are the Marshalls on route which makes it fun. I might do that one day.

See you next week.
Sasha Guest
