Day 136/365 – Fritton Lake parkrun

Up bright and early and out to Fritton Lake parkrun again, just like last year. I got there nice and early and even did some stretches and had a bit of a jog. I was in my parkrun 50 club t-shirt and my Bristol and West jacket, which got a couple of comments. I headed off and it was odd to be in the leading group, the only other time that has happened was at the last Women’s Running 10k at Blaise Castle. We soon hit the woods where it was pretty much single file and I settled into a nice tough rhythm. I knew I was first lady but I had been first lady at this parkrun before and been passed on the second lap (there seem to be a lot of triathletes at this parkrun, I got passed by one half way round the first lap). I didn’t know what kind of a lead I had so I just kept pushing on, putting in a 4:19 km at one point. I got passed in the final run-in but finished 1st lady (so obviously first in my age category), and 13th overall out of 68 in an official time of 22:02 – my fastest to date on that course. I was two minutes ahead of the next lady in.
