And now, from the same author, Parkrunners 10/08/2013!

At Banstead Woods, Mike Crimmen knocked over 3 mins off his time in his 2nd comeback run, recording 36:03.  Jon Kinsey ran his 100th parkrun at Bushey and Richard and Victoria Kirk were first timers at Harrow Lodge.

There was a hive of activity at Kingston where Tess Lambert, in her first ever parkrun, was 3rd lady in 23:20.  There were PBs for Amy Tomlins and Chris Wilson, 7 secs, Jon Sweeney, 1sec, Steve Ramek, 27 secs, and Matthew Young, 28 secs.  Matthew has now run PBs in all 7 of his parkruns, lowering his time by just over 5.5 mins. to 20:10.  Pride of place should go to Lizzie Ruth Wilson who ducked under 30 mins for the first time since her PB run on 28/05/11.  Interestingly, she ran the same time, 29:50, a week before and recorded an age grading of 57.4%. This week, her age grading was 58.09%.

Danny Norman was a first timer and first finisher at Newport by 26 secs, and Dave Wilson chose Poole for his 199th parkrun, finishing 61st in a field of 495, with a time of 20:56, his best for many a month.  Do we know where he will be doing his 200th parkrun? I’m sure he knows and I would not be surprised if he quietly does it by himself.
