48 runners and walkers came along for the Cambridge NZ parkrun event number 193.
There were just 3 first timers this week - Vaughan MORRISON who is a Hagley/Foster parkrun regular.... as well as Ken NICHOLL and Doug JONES who have both completed most of their parkruns at Hamilton Lake.
This morning was cooler than I expected, although the weather app claimed 14°. I for one swapped my shorts for long tights when I got into my gear this morning.
The path was relatively quiet this morning apart from us parkrunners. I just saw two other path users enjoying walks with their four legged friends.
New personal best times were achieved by 8 people this morning, 18% of today’s crowd! - awesome work to Braedon CATCHPOLE, Tara SACKE, Raelene GRINTER, Phil ARCH, Russell GRINTER, Kerry AITKEN, Greg UDY and Leanne HINTON.
Braedon and Tara came closely in placing 2nd and 3rd with just 4 seconds in between each other, and both achieving PBs - the power of pushing and motivating each other.
That is one thing that is great about the parkrun community, regardless of whether you finish in 20 minutes or 60 minutes.. you have the support and encouragement from all of the other fellow parkrunners.
There were no milestones identified this week, but I can see some people are getting close to one.
Enjoy your weekend
