9/4/2021 Lillie parkrun #89: Poetry in Motion

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:
