We started our weekend with a bright and sunny day at Depot Park, with a temperature of 73° and 95% humidity.
This week 57 people ran, jogged and walked the course, including 8 first-timers. Despite the hot sun, it was another banner week for Personal Bests, with a total of 12: Andrew, Nigel, Luis, Kaitlin, Kathryn, Leanne, Casey, Parker, Thomas, Helen, Patricia, and Jacqueline. Congratulations to our First Five finishers: Justin, William D, David, Sam, and William S!
Special congratulations to John Jopling for reaching his 50th parkrun this week! In case you missed it, John was featured in the Parkrun USA blog last month: https://blog.parkrun.com/.../07/06/the-same-but-different/.
We welcomed parkrun tourists Justin and Karen from England’s Lloyd parkrun today. From much closer to home, we also welcomed current and former Gainesville City Commissioners, Helen Warren and Adrian Hayes-Santos. Glad to have you with us!
