The threat of heavy mid-morning rain at this morning’s park run, at Lister Park, failed to put off our members!!…in fact, we had a very healthy turnout and a whole host of super times!! Our training routes can be a touch severe, at times, but they give ideal preparation for race day, especially if a race is on a none-too-flat course!(Lister Park??). Here’s today’s “roll of honour” :- Declan Craven 19.20 (a great 10th, and his 2nd best ever time!!); Craig Richardson 22.32 (.. = Assistant Run Leader Craig!..his début parkrun..very good time!); Aiden Cunningham 23.25 (Claire Baggley’s speedy son, on his first ever parkrun!); Matt Thornton 23.59 (a very quick PB by over a minute!!); Stacey Cleal 25.31 (her 11th best time in a whopping 93 parkruns!); Claire Baggley 26.01 (just 3 seconds outside her 2nd best ever time!); Glenn Thornton, aka Mr. PB!! (his FOURTH PB on the trot, and by 19 seconds!..PB’s seem to run in his family!!); Steve Brook 27.19 (his 3rd best time in 35 park runs!); Abbie Cleal 28.29 (her fastest time since July!); Maria Rhodes 30.03 – did her 4th best time chasing young son Preston round in a PB of 30.01 (his best time by 87 seconds, and 3rd PB in succession!!) – his brother Dexter ran a super 37.07 (2 mins 23 secs quicker than his last run) and pulled his Dad Kevin round in his 2nd best time of 37.09!! (two speedy sons, there…..great prospects!!) ; Brontë Simpson 30.27 (very consistent – her 5th best time in an amazing 47 parkruns!!); Dianne Simpson 31.01 (two and a half minutes QUICKER than when she joined our group 6 months ago!!); Leona Mydlowski 34.37 (her 2nd best ever time!!..only 11 seconds outside her PB!!), and Holly Cleal 47.36 (her 2nd best ever time..just 28 seconds outside her PB!!). Oh, and I ran 19.07, 8th (Martin Firth!)….rapidly becoming a “marker” for our quicker runners!! Apologies for all the details, but they show just how well we are performing and progressing, irrespective of ability level…the figures are suitable proof! Well done everybody!!
