sawyl: (A self portrait)
Decent run this morning, finishing 15th in 20:23. The first kilometre was very fast and I definitely dropped the pace back over the last klick — I caught myself daydreaming as we were coming back along the spillway — and only remembered to start cranking up the pace when we hit the uphill section. But I finished with a few seconds of last week, so I'm not unhappy with how I did.

M was there for her first parkrun for a few months and while she wasn't quite as quick as last time she ran when she nailed a PB, she still recorded her 4th fastest time. We didn't stop for tea at the Quay because she needed to get to the bank by 10:30, so I went round to D&P's to say hello to Dasher and Blitzen and to get my face comprehensively licked by a very excited Dash.

When I got home, I found my 50th T-shirt had arrived just too late for this morning's run:

Parkrun 50 Selfie

You can't see it in the photo, but it's got 50 written at the back of the collar — just under the ponytail — presumably intended to inspire the people slogging along behind with the message that if you can hit a major milestone, they too can do the same if they just stick with it. And presumably it also gives them a bit of a boost when they realise that they've just stormed past a long-time parkrunner...
