We had a great day at Anacostia parkrun!

It was chilly, but sunny and not windy - with another excellent turnout of 43 runners (44 actually but one gal asked not to be counted - this time - but plans to sign up now!)

Thanks very much to Tyrone, Sarah and Valerie for their great help, with a special thanks to Tyrone's processing tips! This was Kit's first time as Run Director and her first run report.

So much News of the day:
If I'm reading the results correctly, we had 17 new for Anacostia - 13 of these are parkrun 1st timers - Woo Hoo! A handful of Roosevelt Island refugees came, and a couple from Fletcher's cove. We cheered Marie Reed who reached her 50th Park Run (see photo next to flag on Facebook), and we were the 228th parkrun for a fellow from Canberra, Australia - his 2nd stop on a multi-week parkrun tour which began in Toronto and will go next to Sicily, Copenhagen and Frankfurt! Not only did he run, and join us at the cafe, he also earned volunteering credit offering to sort the tokens! Hype Cafe is a welcome post-race spot where we now regularly need a row for all our folk enjoying each other's company - and excellent coffee and food.
