parkrun #50

The big 5-0. The parkrun day that I finally earn the red 50 finishers shirt as so graciously supplied by addidas. Time to whirl those legs and go for a fast time once again? Nope. Running friend Dan picked up an ankle injury at the addidas Thunder Run so he partially hobbled while I gently jogged and we chatted the entire way round.

Meanwhile The Son went blasting out to set a new PB and hopefully crack the sub-25 minute barrier for the first time. There were pacers out in force so we advised him to keep the 25 minute pacer within sight and then sprint the final uphill slope. Unfortunately he took things a bit too carefully at the start so  failed to take down 25 minutes but he was chuffed to crack out a new PB.

  1. Woo hoo! Congratulations on earning your 50 club t-shirt.

    • Thanks! I seem to have timed it badly as the previous shirts were given out on the same day as my 50th run, so I still have a couple of weeks until mine arrives.
