Event 317: 10 July 2021

Positivity Breeds Positivity

A few weeks back my wife and I turned up early for Kapiti Coast Parkrun. We have just recently moved up to Paraparaumu Beach and are still run directors at Porirua Parkrun. It is a habit to turn up early and just help out if and when needed.

As we were hanging around before the start a lovely lady called Barbara turned up and was asking about Parkrun. This was her very first event and she was very nervous and explained she had registered for parkrun a year earlier but never had the confidence to go. I talked to her about the process for the day and also about my parkrun journey. Barbara seemed to be a bit more relaxed which was great to see so I thought I would share my journey with you all.

Having started back in 2014 after my wife dragged me along I was really nervous. Why on earth would I want to go to a running event when I can't run and all these super fit athletes are around me. I was just picturing myself being everyone's joke for the day. I turned up and did the run/walk and it was nothing like what I expected, there was no judging just people out doing their thing. Over the next few years I only went occasionally, I would get injured and just not go.

My weight was close to 125kg. I didn't feel good about much but started getting more active at parkrun. This time when I got injured and was out for weeks/months I still went with my wife but volunteered just to keep being part of the atmosphere. I didn't want to volunteer at first because I did not want to stuff anything up, however before long I had done 50 volunteers and 50 runs. I had covered every role from Run Director & Results Processing to Barcode Scanning and Timekeeper.

As I was running/walking I would get the regulars at parkrun starting to make comments like "Good work" "keep it up" and I am thinking to myself that these are the super fit athletes who I was afraid of the very first time. The fact that they did not really know me or need to encourage me was a real boost. Before long these comments kept inspiring me to get better. I was losing weight and all of a sudden I am actually able to run the whole 5km.

The Run Grumpy Finish Happy team started inviting me along to run with them at other times. I went from having no confidence to feeling like I belonged as part of a group. I signed up for the 50km Taupo ultra-marathon last year (and completed it) which would never have been possible without these guys. I went from being a type 2 diabetic on insulin to having no medication and my levels being below even prediabetic. I had also dropped 45kg.

Unfortunately I had a neck injury which caused me to stop running for a long time and caused me to put weight back on. However by sticking around parkrun and the positive attitudes and either just walking or volunteering these guys have helped me start getting to where I want to be now that the neck injury is sorted. The weight is dropping off again and I have signed up for the Tarawera 100km next year. Can I go that far? Who knows, but without a goal I will not have anything to achieve and I will be giving it my best effort possible. Failure isn’t not finishing, failure is not making an effort to start.

None of my journey would be possible if it were not for all the positive comments along the way from the people at parkrun. For the reasons above Porirua Parkrun will always be my home Parkrun however I couldn’t ask for a nice place than Kapiti Coast Parkrun to be my second home.

It doesn't matter if you are passing the fastest or slowest person you never know what words of encouragement might do for a person. Thank the volunteers because without them we wouldn’t be running. Thank all those that do things behind the scenes as there is a lot more than goes into parkrun than what we see as runners.

Event 314: 19 June 2021

Today at Parkrun #314 we had 100 finishers plus #314.

I opted to be lead bike so wasn't present for the briefing and missed most of the finishers as well!

Lovely to see so many appreciative runners still able to talk and run at the half way mark who thanked me for volunteering.... which involved little more than setting the cone up and waiting for the last group. A few even offered to change places with me. Not to worry, Parkrun is always looking for volunteeers. Alas, I had to take the day off running, despite looming within a minute to my goal time, as this week's Parkrun took place between two sessions at a swim meet, and I wanted to conserve energy!  We were fortunate to have not a drop of rain despite the prediction for a rainy weekend. I'm looking forward to next week when I can join you on the course!

Some of our newer runners noticed that we have a little alphabetically ordered file card box on the picnic table. If you don't have a bar code token or wrist band, its great to leave a back up in here (I actually use this system most weeks). This would be especially handy for those who come sporadically, or those for whom organisation at 7:30am could be a challenge. Finish the race, take your printed bar code out of the box and back to the scanners and then replace ready for next week. Simple!

Event 313: 12 June 2021

It was perfect running conditions cool and calm for my 5th parkrun at my newly adopted home parkrun. Sub 30mins for me today which I am happy with.

As Bruce called the briefing it was a locals only today.

Plenty of smiles as the photos show. Gosh my photo had this amazing shot of the craziest ponytail. Wow check out the amazing photo of the birds. Yes, heads up to the guy running with his shirt off.

Great coffee at the finish. Thanks to the volunteers. Always a great way to start the weekend.

Event 310: 22 May 2021

Today 96 people (and a few four legged friends) ran and walked Kapiti parkrun number 310.

There were few visitors from other parkruns, including one person from Australia – overseas visitors are quite rare these days so they always get a big welcome cheer.

There were seven first timers and 11 people completed PBs – congratulations to all!

I’m based in Wellington so it was a fairly early start for me but it was a perfect morning worth turning up for.

It started off very crisp and my hands didn’t warm up until after the halfway mark.

It’s a lovely track along the river so it’s very peaceful and you always see lots of birds and ducks.

The photographer was about 400 meters from the finish line today getting lots of great action shots.

Once I crossed the finish line and got my breath back I watched the rest of the pack come in.

There were a few little ones in buggys and lots of kids racing parents in a sprint to the finish line.

I realised how cold it was when I looked around and saw steam pouring off everyone as they finished.

There was a coffee car supplying the post-run energy and helping keep people warm.

Another Saturday parkrun ticked off and one more closer to the next milestone for everyone.

As always, big thanks for all the volunteers!

Event 311: 29 May 2021

The rain managed to hold off during our run today, although it might have rained for those who were still walking on the track. As well as the nice trail course for my friend and ex-colleague Benny Lau who I took with me on our way to parkrun this morning. It was a new parkrun course for him and also my seventh visit to the course. Another nice trail run makes the slippery conditions favourable for those with light speedy feet to race themselves to the finish line.

Although there was a smaller attendance than usual, I suspect that the rain would have put people off from going to the parkrun and it is also our last autumn parkrun for 2021. We were grateful that parkrun is a great way to exercise and to continue with the rest of our day. The weather was very calm, not too cold and windy either, so it is perfect for 6 parkrunners who managed to get a personal best, which I will mention later in this report.

The temptation of having coffee was great and I believe it is the first time that I have seen the coffee van at this parkrun. Although it is the usual gathering point for a post run coffee, maybe the next time I come here I should try the coffee out! It is good to see other runners having a great catch up afterwards and getting to know one another.

Today we had 5 first timers to the course. 3 of which ran their parkrun for the very first time. We do hope to see you again. Congratulations to Jed SEXTON, Yvonne VAN LEEUWEN and Graham COLE. The other two first timers were from Rotorua and the great Wellington region. There were some travellers from Hamilton who have done the course, so welcome back.

Benny Lau also managed to beat his overall personal best across all of the courses that he has done at this course today. So big congratulations to him. The below photo is Benny and I with the parkrun flag at the start/finish line.

Event 308: 8 May 2021

Today we completed our 7th Parkrun! And still loving it. I first heard about Parkrun when I was in Australia in 2019, as a Victoria friend on the course was always talking about a community run thing she volunteered at. It sounded fun! And coming out of a year of Covid, I decided it was time to get into some more fitness, and into more group activities. I was very excited to find there was a parkrun near me, and I could bring the pooch along too! She loves it (a bit too much) and it is such a great start to the weekend.

This Saturday's run conditions were calm and balmy, and it is a blessing to have such a pretty (and sheltered) place to run. I always tell myself that I am running downhill after the turn around, as rivers run downhill right? This week we had a few more visitors from other parts of NZ and even an international runner! Which is a nice sign that travel is starting again.

I'm fairly sure my dog thinks we are all hunting something (Our Personal best perhaps?!) and goes from her normally calm self to a baying manic as we all line up to start the run. As everyone else takes off, I try to distract her with treats till her barking subsides, and we too head off, the runners, the walkers, the sprinters and we. I was pretty happy with my pace the whole run, and definitely beginning to feel a bit fitter, although, there was still that moment, 3/4 in where, on finding no-one ahead of me, and no-one behind, I thought to myself maybe I could stop, have a little break... no-one would know. But I would know! So onwards I run, enjoying the sun, and the birds and the blue morning sky.

Event 306: 24 April 2021 – Hayden’s report

Kia ora and welcome to this week’s Kāpiti Coast Run Report, with tourist writers Hayden King and Annalese Lapwood (visiting from home runs Lower Hutt and Dunedin respectively). Please excuse all the Coast and Run based puns below, we really shouldn’t be trusted with all this power… that’s foreshore.

ANZAC weekend was a little getaway, up the coast from the capital city. For us, Kāpiti rounded out a different parkrun event each weekend of April. As we hunkered down in our little hut on Te Horo beach Friday night, listening to the rain pummeling the roof, we were left wondering what sort of condition that would leave the track in the next day. Thankfully parkrun day was a beautiful crisp morning, (very humid too!), and the aftermath of last night was displayed only on the track. The morning started off a bit unnervy with missing timekeepers and barcode scanners — but full credit to the Kāpiti Coast faithful who put their hands up at the last moment to volunteer and make this event sail smoothly.

This allowed 112 people to run, jog, walk, dodge and side-step the puddles to cross the line. Shout-out to the first male and female runners who did this so effortlessly, Jeroen MATTHEUS and Lucy LAWLOR.

Of that group we had 15 first timers, 4 of whom ran their first ever parkrun! Welcome to the Parkrun whānau.

Dave OLIVER • Hayden KING • Anthea OLIVER • Mike PROUDFOOT (first ever) • Nick BALL (first ever) • Allan CAMERON (first ever) • Annalese LAPWOOD • Alex TURNER • Aimee PROUDFOOT (first ever) • Florrie KERR • Joanne MAGILL • Alison KING • Megan BIGG • Lara GEHLEN (first ever) • Aschwin GEHLEN (first ever).

We also witnessed 9 new personal bests – congratulations to:

Jeroen MATTHEUS • Zane WAKELING • Jordan HORRELL • Zamira HARDY • Mari DAVENPORT • Lynne RUSSELL • Laura MILESTONE • Fiona ROWAN-THOMSON • Oscar CLARK

Another massive congratulations to the milestone runners that were recognised this week who we think truly embody the phrase: “Been there, run that, got the t-shirt”. Karen POTGIETER smashing 250, Michael PEARCE hitting 100, and Anna PATTERSON reaching 50 last week, and coming back for 51 this week!

Thanks again to the Kapiti team for allowing us this opportunity to write this report – it’s been a bundle of run... Just another reminder that these events can’t happen without the support of our active volunteers. There are various roles where you can still participate and volunteer at the same time too. Why not get involved and volunteer?

Sea you next Saturday!

Hayden KING and Annalese LAPWOOD

 

 

Event 306: 24 April 2021 – Alison’s report

This parkrunday was my first official visit to Kapiti Coast parkrun, but I was already familiar with the course.

Last month I was one of the bus load of parkrunners on what’s known as the longest day, or Bruce’s Bus.

We started at Lower Hutt parkrun and finished at Trentham Memorial, running and walking at four others along the way.

Kapiti Coast was our third that day.

I’m trying to complete all of New Zealand’s parkruns (on a Saturday and with a recorded time) so I had to return to Otaihanga Domain.

The rain overnight was an ominous sign but we awoke to sunshine and a glorious autumn day.

There were 112 finishers at this event, with a mix of locals and visitors from Wellington, Napier and myself from Rotorua (my home run is Puarenga parkrun).

There were nine in all visiting this parkrun for the first time. As well as myself, Megan Bigg, Florrie Kerr, Joanne Magill, Annalese Lapwood, Hayden King, Alex Turner, Anthea Oliver and Dave Oliver were visitors.

There were six parkrunners using their barcode for the very first time.

Welcome to Aimee Proudfoot, Allan Cameron, Aschwin Gehlen, Lara Gehlen, Mike Proudfoot and Nick Ball.

Congratulations on your first finish, may your Saturday mornings never be the same again!

Nine parkrunners achieved personal bests.

Well done to Fiona Rowan Thomson, Jeroen Mattheus, Jordan Horrell, Laura Milestone, Lynne Russell, Mari Davenport, Oscar Clark, Zamira Hardy and Zane Wakeling.

It was great to see a range of milestone shirts, and today we celebrated Karien Potgieter achieve her 250 milestone and Michael Pearce who has run 100 parkruns.

To those who are only just starting their parkrun lives these numbers may seem out of reach, but all you need to do is be consistent – show up as often as you can and you will get there too.

We can’t do parkrun without the volunteers, so a big hand goes to Brittany CALDER • John GLYNN-BEGBIE • Joanna JENKINS • Lucy LAWLOR • Gary CRILLEY • Alison KING • René GREYLING • Sandy CHAN • Graeme CROMPTON • Bruce WILSON • Hayden KING • Aimee PROUDFOOT.

There is a milestone shirt for those who have volunteered on 25 occasions, from September 1 there will be shirts to match the running milestones.

Volunteers don’t do it for the shirts, if you’ve not yet volunteered give it a go.

You can download the Virtual Volunteer app and have a play at home so you can confidently give it a go in the field.

The beauty of parkrun is that once you have registered you can run anywhere. I’m on a quest to complete all in New Zealand and I hope to achieve that this year.

I’ve written a book about all the New Zealand runs to share their origins and help parkrunners get the most of their weekends.

parkrun tourism is a huge passion of mine, some parkrunners combine parkrun with other passions. I like to tell stories – or at least, I collect stories to share on my blog.

You can find out more about parkrunners I’ve come across on my travels over at www.runswithabarcode.co.nz and if you want to share your story I’d love to hear from you.

Event 303: 3 April 2021

Another glorious Kapiti day as Parkrun Kapiti had it’s last event this year before the end of daylight savings.

Kind of apt that today being Easter weekend also happens to be run #303 . Not a lot of rabbits about as one can only presume they were busy getting the eggs ready for tomorrow?

Crisp but clear conditions greeted the 103 participants today.

A few puddles greeted the runners on the first & last 500mt of the course but other than that pretty good conditions underfoot all round.

Great to see 8 first timers out there today. Mix that in with 14 PB’s achieved as well.

Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their long weekend and best of luck to those in next weekends Great Forrest Run in Waitarere.

Event 302: 27 March 2021

One of the things I love about parkrun is that it's as casual or serious as you make it.  You can show up and jog it once a year, or you can race it every single weekend.  You can include parkrun in your travels and visit a new course when you're in town, or you can plan your travels around parkrun.  You can even choose to run all the parkrun courses in the lower North Island in one day, which is what I did last Sunday.

The event is organised by one of the regulars at Lower Hutt parkrun, and most of the 30 odd runners were from the Hutt, although a few were from further afield including Anderson (Napier) and Puarenga (Rotorua) parkruns.  I have done this once before, two years ago.  (Last year the trip was cancelled because we were in lockdown.)  Two years ago there were only 5 parkruns in the lower North Island; with the recent opening of Trentham Memorial Parkrun, we had to include that as well, so 25km became 30km.  We all chipped in and hired a bus for the day to transport us between parkruns, because what could be better than a bus full of like-minded sweaty runners?

The day began with a drive to Lower Hutt, leaving Kapiti at six so we could say hi to our old friends and hit the start line at seven.  We trotted round the course on fresh legs, blissfully unaware of the pain and stiffness that would follow later in the day.  This parkrun is an out and back along the Hutt River, a flat fast course mostly on concrete paths.

With the first run out of the way, we piled onto the bus and headed to Porirua, and received our goodie bags, which consisted of jet planes, bliss balls and muesli bars.  Porirua is easily my favourite course, it starts with a gentle climb through tree-lined paths on the way up, and a speedy zoom down on the way back.  Due to the climb, you're unlikely to get a PB on this course, but the scenery is worth it - there's just something I love about running through trees and bush.

Back on the bus with a quick stop at Plimmerton for a coffee, where the folks at Palmers served 30 odd runners in record time, then off to Kapiti Coast parkrun.  Feeling the home turf advantage, I shot off and completed my fastest run of the day, showing the Lower Hutt folk how it's done on the Coast.

We opted not to stop at a cafe for lunch this time, as last time it caused us to be badly behind schedule and we ended up running Greytown Woodside Trail in the dark, so we picnicked in the Domain instead.  A gang of three ducks stole my scone; fortunately the other runners had over-catered and came to my aid with carrot cake, watermelon and sushi.  Then a quick wardrobe change before getting back on the bus and heading to Palmerston North.

Palmerston North parkrun is another out-and-back riverside track, this time alongside the Manawatu River, and like Lower Hutt, this one is run on concrete paths so there are no mud puddles to negotiate.  When we got back to the bus, we found our bus driver had fallen down the bus steps and hit his head.  He bravely carried on anyway, swapping with another driver when we reached the Wairarapa.

Our new driver delivered us to the Carterton public facilities, a highlight of the trip.  Everyone piled off the bus - the queues were too long at Palmerston North so hardly anyone bothered to go there.  Then onwards to Greytown.  I was leading the pack for the first 2km, when all of a sudden the course turned onto the road.  Wait, am I going the right way?  Where are the marshalls? I don't remember this - but last time it was pitch dark so of course I don't remember.  Thankfully the runner behind me caught up and pointed out the cone markers that were right in front of my face.  If anyone's going to get lost, it will be me.

Our new driver entertained us over the Remutakas with his rendition of King of the Road (which involved gleefully tooting the horn), and a Princess Diana joke that I won't repeat. Last stop was the brand new Trentham Memorial parkrun, which like all the others is an out-and-back, but on this one you do a little loop through the trees on the way back.  The quad and calf pain had well and truly started at this stage and I struggled to get through, but I finished without stopping.

While we were running Trentham, our second bus driver managed to also fall down the steps of the bus.  Curious that out of approximately 30 runners running 30k each, the only injured parties were our bus drivers.  Luckily, our second bus driver wasn't badly hurt and dropped us off to the carpark at Lower Hutt parkrun at about 8pm, where we said goodbye to our friends and drove back to Kapiti in the dark.

Thinking of joining us next time? Here are my tips:

  • Bring a hydration bladder if you have one, it holds more and takes up less space in your bag than drink bottles.
  • Bring AT LEAST one change of gear; trust me, you don't want to do six 5ks in the same pair of undies.
  • Bring something to do on the bus (I'm reading Feet in the Clouds by Richard Askwith, highly recommended for trail runners and other crazies).
  • You'll get used to the smell.
  • Pace yourself! My first run was my slowest of the day. Resist the temptation to do your normal parkrun speed.
  • Six 5ks is harder on your body than running 30k straight.  Especially with an hour or more of sitting down between each run.  Make sure you warm up/cool down appropriately for EVERY run.
  • Train!  You can't expect to run six 5ks in a row if all you've ever done is 5ks.  If you are comfortable doing a 20k run then you should be fine.
  • Use the toilet whenever you get a chance, you don't know how far away the next one is going to be!
  • Take a headlamp, antiperspirant, sunscreen, rain gear, warm clothes, snacks, and expect delays.
  • Maybe take a spare bus driver or two as well...
