Some parkrundays are better than others. Today’s was better than most.
The course had less gooey grass than I had expected, as they were running their winter variation. An ultra-running friend was down from Lancashire, some touring friends were visiting and a local friend had stayed local. I spent the first lap chatting to my ultra-running friend and when she stretched her legs and dropped me at the start of the second lap, a new-to-me tourist in a 250-t took her place.
Nice course, convenient café, great company, and close enough to home to merit an 07:xx alarm call.
