parkrundays: Town Moor #622 and Jesmond Dene #158

Quick parkrunday catchup. The last couple of weeks I’ve been volunteering at parkrun due to Sunday races (race blogs to follow next week hopefully).

A week and a half ago I was at Town Moor. It was Star Wars Day, the day before the Newcastle-Gateshead Marathon/Half Marathon/10k, and also my friend Claire’s 250th parkrun – so a lively atmosphere all round! I was pacing 30 minutes, which feels very easy for me now and didn’t tax the legs too much before my 10k the next day. I was bang on by my watch and 29:59 by result, which is the closest I’ve ever been as a pacer, so really pleased.

This last weekend I was funnel managing at Jesmond Dene (or rather number checking, as they have now split the role – the ‘funnel manager’ used to do both). This is a busy role that I really enjoy and the parkrun hour always flies by. It did help that the weather was absolutely beautiful this weekend – perhaps might have been a bit warm for a fast run on Saturday! No photo as I was busy.

A little further afield this next weekend.
