I had been fighting off a cold all week, so wasn’t expecting great things this week. The weather looked a little chilly so I took a light rain jacket and was glad of it when it started drizzling walking between the car park and the run start. It stopped for the actual run though and resulted in a partial rainbow visible at the 1.25km turning point.
I was pretty happy to come home sub 25 minutes given the circumstances, though there were a fair few regulars missing (potentially competing in the cross-country races also at Ashton Court this weekend).
I finished 82nd out of 244 parkrunners, was 8th lady and 2nd in my age category. I am now back up to second in the points table (as Jane wasn’t running this week), but won’t be running next week as I will be at a funeral so will inevitably drop back down again.
