Weekly Roundup: 2015-12-15

It is all about the parkrun this week, more over the jump!

Warmup
There was a lot of time and dedication put into this week’s roundup.  The awful weather has taken a firm hold – we had it too good for too long, our only results of the week later.  I was out for dinner with the missus the other evening, and the waiter came over and said to her “How did you find the pork belly?”. Quick as a flash she replied “Oh, about six years ago, we met on holiday”! And the result…

Saturday morning was a mixed bag for anyone brave enough to venture out past the front door.  For snow there was snow, for some ice and for the rest – it just poured with rain.  As usual, that didn’t stop from putting on the gear and getting out into the parks:

Fntastic running folks – especially with the rotten weather over the weekend.  Special mention this week goes to Nessa who was third across the line at the Victoria event – really well done.  Also, two newbie PBs this week from Trevor (at Durham) and Ronan (at Queen’s).

Warmdown
A timely reminder: as we approach Christmas and New Year you can check out if your local parkrun event is hosting a Christmas Day or New Year’s Day event by checking out the Compendium online.  Do you know what is 12 inches long, made of leather and sounds like a sneeze?  It’s a-shoe!

Keep on running!

Live long and prosper.
