It was the Xmas parkrun today, with a picnic afterwards, and we reprised the Bristol & West Xmas dinner that won the Christmas Cracker fancy dress competition a couple of weeks ago. I was under strict instructions not to run faster than 30 minutes by my coach as we have an important cross-country meet tomorrow. I was on target for just a little bit faster than that, but with 1.25km to go we had to stop and wait for a couple of our vegetables who had fallen behind a little. There was also another stop for a photo opportunity. One day closer to having a break.
I finished 246th out of 283 parkrunners, was 83rd lady and 11th in my age category. I am still just about in 2nd place in the points table, but will be volunteering at the next two, maybe three, Ashton Court parkruns so can expect to lose that position as I have already maxed out my volunteering points for the year.
