I’d just about recovered from the New Years Day Double parkrun when it was time to run again on Saturday 4th January. I love how the Christmas period allows quite a few parkruns in quick succession with Christmas Day and New Years Day thrown in the mix.
When I arrived at parkrun I looked out for the 40 minute pacer and saw it was Geoff, who was running with his daughter Laura. We had a lovely run together. Laura and I have mutual friends in common who we’ve both worked or work with, as we used to work in similar fields. We had lots to chat about as a result.
It was a lovely chatty run with Geoff dipping in and out as he was pacing so had to maintain his pace whereas we kept breaking away a little. It was a really comfortable run. 40 minutes seems to be a good easy pace for me! I finished in 39:34 in position 557.
Do you use the pacers at parkrun?
Does your local parkrun provide pacers?
