April 14, 2018 – parkrun #61

As the pre-event crew was running the trail before parkrun this morning, we noticed something up ahead on the trail.  The comments ranged from thinking it was a group of cats,to skunks, to maybe even dogs, but as we got closer, it turned out to be three peacocks & a peahen from Kingwood Center Gardens.

It's  amazing what a week will do with the weather.  Last week it was cold & a bit white with snow on the sides of the trail.   Today the temperatures were in the mid-60's with just the beginnings of green on the bushes that line the trail.   We lucked out this morning, as the forecast was calling for rain, but it was clear skies till we were all off the trail & home.

There was lots to celebrate this morning.  We wished Joyce Dunham a happy birthday today.  Kieth Sammet  joined us as a first timer,  Kieth made the trek from Upper Sandusky with his parents Derek & Linda.  This family not only had Kieth come across the finish line first, but Derek & Linda had PB's too!   Congrats to Kelly Cropp & Diana Shealy for marking their 25th parkrun.


Shout outs to the following folks for new PB's, Derek Sammet, Linda Sammet, Stephanie Heestand, Bob Kline, Mike Bair, Jean Taddie!

Important Reminders:

*Starting May 5, 2018, parkrun will start at 8:00am.  It will be at 8:00am through September.

Definitely get the feeling that this winter is just never going to let up for Mansfield's parkrun. It was once again a crisp morning with the start of our run at 25 degrees. Although cold, the sun was peeking out between the clouds. we had 20 participants along with three dog friends for this our 60th parkrun. There were no PB's this week, but there was plenty of comaradery.

Here are a few photos from this morning's parkrun, some of our four legged friends along with our runners & walkers.

March 24, 2018 – parkrun #58

We began parkrun #58 with crisp temperatures in the mid 20's but with partly sunny skies it felt pretty darn good. This week 34 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom seven were first timers and six recorded new Personal Bests.

At our pre-run/walk briefing we took a moment to welcome a new parkrun in Kensington, MD. We're sure they'll have many wonderful Saturday's to come.

We also welcomed visitors Ellen & Ryan Lambrix along with their six month old son. They were in from London to visit family in the Cleveland area. As they are regular parkrunners at Bushy Park, they traveled to Mansfield to run with us today. Always so much fun when we get visitors in from around the US & the world.
