It was a gorgeous day for a run in the park and a perfect day for a park run.
It was a glorious day with perfect weather in the mid 60s low humidity and a cool breeze for all 76 park runners to enjoy. It was so nice out that 4 visitors from other clubs came to discover the charms of Fletcher's Cove this early September morning.
We've gone back to wearing our masks for our pre-run briefs, but that did not dampen our spirits. In fact the cloudless blue skies and mild temperatures brought out the best in the 20 athletes who posted personal bests. The beautiful weather must have also brought out the 9 new runners who joined us for the first time today.
It's never too early to introduce kids to the joys of the great outdoors and the benefits of exercise. The competitive spirit lives on with a new generation of parkrunners thank you to all the families that bring their young ones along. We all cheered as two of these kids raced each other to a photo finish!
As our post run coffee get-together continues to grow in popularity we explored new ways to maybe streamline the ordering/ queueing process. It's still a work in progress so we're open to ideas. We should acknowledge how accommodating and friendly the staff have been at https://blackcoffeedc.com/. If you've worked up an appetite after your run please do try one of their delicious breakfast sandwiches.
Finally a great big thank you to all those who volunteered to help this week. Clare, Dan, Martin, Nancy, Scott, Linda, Michael, Tricia, Matt, Rob, Jennifer and Maria thank you.
