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!
