Durham, NC parkrun Event #136 – February 20, 2016

It was a big day at parkrun today as we saw first-time Durham, NC parkrunner Gavin Finlay set a new course record of 16:33, just 2 seconds faster than the previous record held since 2014 by Fred Ward. Well done, Gavin!

Congratulations are also in order for Cameron Kelly on the occasion of his 10th run - that's a big deal for these young parkrunners - and his 5th PR, which he earned by besting his last PR by more than a minute! Cameron worked really hard to get here, and we look forward to many more runs with him.

There was something in the air this morning that made many run a bit faster. It could be the hint of spring, or it could be that it was a full 18°F warmer than it was last Saturday and felt positively balmy at 47°F. Besides Cameron Kelly's PR, others with new personal records were Rebeca Cabrera, Kim Cerillo (and on her second ever parkrun!), Pete Rubinas, Anne Vail (a PR after so many runs - 58 in total - is something to cherish), Chris Walker, and Richard Weinberg. Congratulations to these 7 brilliant runners and to all those who may not have set a personal record but still achieved what they set out to this morning.

Record-setter Gavin Finlay was one of our newbies. Also running with us for the first time was Jim Cunningham. Welcome, guys, and we hope you'll both be back!

Thank you to our volunteers Gordon Keeler, Julie Messina, William Schmitz, Kendra Stumpf, Jack VailMartin Warters, and Carlos Webb. Y'all make this thing happen!
