Nansenparken parkrun #68

Despite ever changing forecasts throughout the week, and a few drops of rain early Saturday morning, we lucked out and had another dry and sunny event! This week 47 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 12 were first timers and 9 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 4 different clubs took part.

We had more starters than finishers this Saturday, but that's part of what's great about parkrun. You do what you can manage, no pressure...and you can try again next week. The important thing is that we all got out and got some fresh air and sorely needed vitamin D.

We had a number of first timers, both runners and volunteers. Runners young and young at heart, in top form and those coming back from injury, strollers, well behaved four-legged companions and a wheelchair. Thank you all for coming out!
