Event 227 15 June 2019

Park ran into the winter season'                          Steffan L Wong written at Kapiti Coast district library, post - run with a brown coffee and hottie (hotwaterbottle) on neck. A new season equals new old gear (retail therapy tip) or required supplement stack.

Parkrun is a brilliant way to start ones weekend off, make it my own duty to complete for free every Saturday 8am startline. Straight away feeling glad as everybody is in good time. Happy people always guaranteed at the Otaihanga domain. This way, right way, write away, why a whey, the right way ! Credits to follow. Keeping moving wheather hiding imbalances or not, pet animal dogs are welcome on leads as well.

This mornings ceremony was firstly to announce some milestones of great individuals. Followed by the friendly podium ceremony briefly out of finishing chute. I love the concept of a race pack pick up, all of the compoents of the event are covered, beatiful. No racing winds today as it was still being not very cold or chilly just moderately mild one. Track surface is nearly finished up grading after over a hole entire year. Smoothed out slowly but surely.

Plenty of free parking space available and lots of fun challenges with the race contestants of a spectrum of any abilities, we had no walkers today. Thank we ran in place positions after a few hundred metres, Ash Hough mowed the field down from the gun get go clocking a new sub 19 p.b. Poppy Rae taking out the womens categories be sure to keep an eye on this speedy individual.

Save the stats and please keep our course clean and be a tidy kiwi, remember to keep left always. Im gone but not forgotten.
