Anacostia parkrun #106

A dozen members of the Lincoln Park Track Club comprised the backbone of 49 finishers on the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail alongside the Mighty Anacostia River. 11 of the 49 finishers (22%!) recorded a new parkrun PB this morning.

Tourists included a couple from Belgium running their very first parkrun. The nation of Belgium is still without a parkrun, and a number of us encouraged/pestered them to consider taking steps to introduce parkrun to Belgium when they fly home later this week. Jennifer was run director leading a crew of 11 dedicated volunteers, most of whom made their way to Hype Cafe for the weekly post-parkrun social hour.
