Weekly Roundup: 2017-01-17

Only just the parkrun this week – but there’s photos too over the jump!

Warmup
That was a cold one this week folks, and we can start a new feature: words we learnt this week! Our first entry will be the word “thundersnow” which we will define as ‘nothing flipping happened’. I want to buy an airplane, but my missus cess-nah. Now then – some club results!

parkrun
Ah the weather fairies were being mean this week – swinging us from ten degrees to sub-zero temperatures in 24 hours. This of course meant that we had slippery and icy conditions at most of the parkrun events over the weekend – forcing quite a few to be cancelled, or run as alternative routes (a la Victoria) with no time. Let’s see how we got on:

That was not an easy morning to get out of bed – with the cold seeping in through the windows (only me). Hat tips this week go to everyone!! Absolutely not a weekend for PBs, but a special mention has to go to Brian D who put up with a lot of good natured slaggin’ of how everyone else in the club beat him at Victoria’s 300th event. Thank you Brian D 🙂 ! Here’s the obligatory celebration photo from Victoria’s 300th event:

Warmdown
Nice and quiet one this week, as everyone has begun their secret training for various upcoming races over the next few months. All cool – just make sure that there are plenty of photographs taken! I need to tell you about something awesome that happened to me over the weekend, a clown opened a door for me – it was a nice jester.

Keep on running!

Live long and prosper.
