Event 212 2 March 2019

It was a good turnout at parkrun this week on a beautiful crisp Kapiti morning, with 86 runners and lots of them youngsters which was great to see!

Not a lot of news this morning but there was a reminder about the Park to Path fun run/walk on next weekend (Sunday 10 March) at Otaraua Park, Otaihanga. This is a free event organised by KCDC with run/walk options for adults and kids.

Liam Jones took out first place this week in 18 minutes, 38 seconds – well done Liam! Cath Braddock was the first woman home in 21 minutes, 49 seconds. There were a number of new PBs so it’s great to see everyone getting stuck into some good strong running in 2019!

To end this report, I’ll share with you my favourite quote that motivates me with my running: ‘Remove ‘can’t’ and ‘won’t from your vocabulary’. This is especially helpful at the bottom of a large hill! Who knows, it might help or motivate you too.

Happy running everyone!
