parkrunday: Agnew #60

It was another glorious morning in Newcastle upon Tyne today! …according to my Ring video doorbell.

We were not in Newcastle upon Tyne. We were parkrunning in Stranraer at Agnew parkrun, one of the wettest parkruns we have ever done.

The excellent post-parkrun snack offering trend in this area of Scotland continues to impress. Following complimentary tablet at Girvan Prom last summer, we had complimentary Irn-Bru and a Tunnock’s teacake at Agnew today! Photo (c) John Cooke 2022.

It was also hands-down the flattest parkrun we’ve ever done, and I got another post-hiatus PB in my magic shoes – over a minute off my 32:20 result at Town Moor three weeks ago. My watch today said 31:17, my official result 30:21 – there have been some problems with the results apparently so I’ll go with the watch for now!

I’ll be trying out the last of the three parkruns in the area (Crichton in Dumfries) next time we’re here, but after that I expect we’ll stick to Agnew. Beautifully fast and I can’t wait to come back on a day with better weather!
