I’m not going to write about parkrun every week. To be perfectly honest, it’d get a bit dull.
However, if anything out of the ordinary happens, then I will make an exception.
The weather has been appalling for the last few months. More rain than I can remember falling before. When we first started to plan parkrun around this time last year, we visited Clair Park and it had been raining heavily. The section at the bottom of the course was totally flooded. I imagine that it is down to the drains getting blocked following the leaf fall.
So I guess what greeted us was to be expected. I had no particular role this week, so I was free to take some photos and I was lucky that it happened this week.
Here are a selection of the photos I took. There are more at – https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.209565615909160.1073741864.136451203220602&type=3
I did wonder how people would react to this, especially the juniors. It was amazing. Everyone got stuck in and seemed to relish it.
There seemed to be a real buzz afterwards today, as people had something extra to talk about.
The power of parkrun does not and hopefully will never cease to amaze me.
