Event 265 – 22 February 2020

Another first for Kapiti Coast Park Run - to my knowledge our first female run director - great work Lucy!
Now, I have been to other park runs, and as far as I can determine, it is not a pre-requisite that run directors must have a bump. What I can say with certainty is that Andy’s bump, and Lucy’s bump, are the result of quite different activities.
Having Lucy on the podium this morning inspired me to complete a personal best, along with 15 others. Great exercise everybody. In my case, I was also following Jude’s instructions, which of course I always do!
I know that personal bests are hard to achieve, so never “smash” your previous best. Incremental one or two second gains mean you can go on with personal bests over the coming weeks and months. Gives you a glow to take with you through your Saturday. Good luck with that.
We are doing a little park run tourism in the coming weeks so see you back walking and running at Kapiti towards the end of March.
