Lillie parkrun, number 89:
Turnout was decent, weather was fine.
‘skeeters were present, wanting to dine.
58 braved them and crossed the line.
Oh yes, dear readers, it’s well past time
A Run Rep written wholly in rhyme
“Far too silly” did I hear you chime?
I drop the gauntlet: Run Rep in Mime.
Barkrunners were plenty, some humans came too
But still no kitties in our Saturday Zoo.
5 ran for the first time, so Welcome to you:
Jeffrey, Thorsten, Srishiki, Bill, Leslie. Woo!
There were 11 personal bests
Well done all, celebrate, beat your chests!
And we broke records -4 of them, yes!
For times in age groups, 3 were fastest.
Walter C, Laurel P, Ellen R
-they set new top times for Lillie Park.
That isn’t all -Laurel ran so hard
She topped her own age-graded record.
First back was Josh S, also Jeremie O
Who ran the same time, less than 20, you know.
Laurel P for the women -new record. Yo!
And Tui for dogs -wishing Charles would let go!
Lastly, a pic, which I think is awesome.
Matti the dog, and Thorsten and Torsten:
