Lillydale Lake parkrun – Event #182

Welcome to everyone who joined us on Saturday morning, for a surprisingly chilly start to our run, and congratulations to the huge numbers of you who recorded a new personal best time this week! Welcome to all our first-timers this week, and a special welcome to our parkrun tourists - Jacqui from Inverloch parkrun, and Sara from Studley parkrun.

Congratulations to our newest members of the super-elite parkrun milestone club (we think all our parkrunners are gorgeous, but you have to admit these two win this week's cuteness award!)

  • Isabella Timewell (10 parkruns in the JW10 category): Isabella has run 11 times at Lillydale Lake, starting in March this year, and with a current PB of 40.19.
  • Joshua Timewell (10 parkruns in the JM10 category): Joshua has also run 11 times at his home parkrun, also starting in March this year. Joshua's best time so far is 44.41.

We are building a collection of unclaimed certificates, so if you have recently reached a milestone, please make sure you turn up on time so you can hear your name called out!

Awesome achievements:
Wow, so many new PBs this week! Well done to all who managed this elusive achievement, especially those who have more than 30 local parkruns to their name. The Petrie family dominate the list this week:

  • Andrew Carpenter (91 parkruns): Well done Andrew, on taking a massive 25 secs off your previous best, set back in January, for a new PB of 28.36
  • Sue-Ann van Twuyver (68 parkruns): An even bigger improvement for Sue-Ann, who took a huge 1 min 9 secs off last June's PB, for a new record of 27.28
  • Brooke Petrie (58 parkruns, JW11-14): Brooke just keeps improving, taking a further 5 seconds off last month's PB, for a new best time of 23.05
  • Nicola Sweet Petrie (46 parkruns): Nicola left nothing in the tank this week (her kids thought the defibrillator might get its first tryout), but it was all worth it, with a further 3 seconds off and a brand new PB of 29.18.
  • Robbie Petrie (38 parkruns, JM10): Two PBs in two weeks for Robbie, taking 14 secs from last week's great time, for a new PB of 26.00. (And great encouragement from Auntie June to cheer him over the line!)
  • Monika Brown (35 parkruns): A huge 32 secs off this week for Monika, to set a new best time of 34.07 - great effort!
  • Joshua Hellema (34 parkruns): Another one beating last month's PB - 13 seconds off for Josh, setting a new best time of 21.08
  • Dan Beard (34 parkruns): Hard to believe that Dan could get any faster, but yes, our regular first-finisher shaved 2 secs off his previous PB for a new time to beat of 17.12
  • Sarah Lacala (32 parkruns): Another huge improvement, with 30 seconds off for Sarah this week, and a new PB of 27.36.

Changes to the Event Team:
Mak announced recently that Linda van Duynhoven has retired as our long-standing Volunteer Coordinator, and we're delighted to announce now that Kylie Dealy has agreed to take on this vital role. And we're also rapt to welcome Des Keuken to the team as co-Run Report Writer, sharing the duties with Debbi. Thanks so much for all your wonderful work over the past few years Linda, and welcome to the team Kylie and Des!

Upcoming events - Christmas party
Mark your calendars for Saturday evening, December 2! We're just finalising the details for a finger-food, family-friendly event in Lilydale, so more details will be announced in the next few days.

Thank you to all our awesome volunteers this week. Our photos are from Josh Radley and Fiona Williams.

Lillydale Lake parkrun – Event #181

OH NO!
Despite the best efforts of our volunteer photographer this week, we have somehow mislaid the SD card with all our run photos! So apologies to everyone, especially our new milestone club members - we'll keep looking just in case it turns up. (I blame the Run Director). To make up for it, we have a special treat this week - our parkrun tourist Roderick from London has written a run report! (See below).

Welcome to everyone who ran this week, especially our first-timers, and our parkrun tourists: Charlotte (Diamond Creek parkrun), Ellie (Hampstead Heath, in London), John (Perth parkrun) and Roderick (London). And congratulations to our newest milestone club members:

  • Alex Wallace (50 parkruns): Alex has run 43 times at Lillydale Lake, with tourist trips to Albert Park, Palmerston, Darwin, Hamilton Island, Merimbula, Balyang Sanctuary, Bendigo & Fingal Bay parkruns. He started with us in January 2016, scoring 8 PBs in his next 8 runs(!) and has a current PB of 19.20. Alex has already volunteered 8 times - thank-you Alex!
  • Sarah Boschen (50 parkruns). Sarah has now run 51 parkruns (we missed her 50th!), and first ran with us last October. Since then, she has run 28 times locally with 15 PBs!!! Her current PB (set last week) is 27.06. Sarah has also run 21 times at Mullum Mullum, plus visits to Phillip Island & Wilson Botanical, and has volunteered once.
  • Ian Uren (100 parkruns): Ian has run 68 times locally, and has touristed to so many events, we can't list them all here, so we'll just say he has run in QLD, NSW, ACT, VIC and TAS! His current PB is 23.12, and Ian has volunteered a whopping 21 times! Thanks for all your help over the years Ian!

Awesome achievements this week:
Well done to everyone who managed a PB this week, especially those who have more than 30 local events (10 for juniors) already to their name:

  • Darren Moore (86 parkruns): Hooray! Darren has been training hard to beat a long-standing PB (from way back in March 2015) and after equalling it 2 weeks ago, finally managed to get under by a huge 38 secs! Congrats on the new PB of 24.56 Darren!
  • Robbie Petrie (37 parkruns, JM10): The trip to Petrie parkrun (and write-up in the national newsletter) must have been inspiring - Robbie took off an impressive 11 secs from his previous best to set a new PB of 26.14. Great work Robbie!
  • Liam Wilson-Gardiner (34 parkruns, JM15-17): This young speedster took a further 4 secs off his already impressive best, to set a new record of 18.50. Is our course record in danger? Well done Liam!

Run Report - by parkrun tourist Roderick Hoffman (London):
It was an honour to run at Lillydale Lake parkrun on Saturday for my 271st parkrun, and at my 207th different parkrun venue across 12 different countries.  What can I tell you about my experiences at different parkruns around the world?  The adage is true, "every parkrun the same, every parkrun different":

Every parkrun is the same - the same welcome awaits, the key messages of the pre-run briefing are the same (mostly, at Nose Hill in Canada I was warned to keep an eye out for the coyotes, parkruns mention cows and in Australia I have been advised about kangaroos), the same barcode delivers you your result, the same mix of runners and walkers make up the field with a scattering of dogs on short leashes, escorted kids and youngsters in prams (though not so often double buggies so well done the runner on Saturday with two in the pram).

But every parkrun is different; unique:

The terrain varies and I deliberate chose to run at Lillydale because of its flat course, given that I was in Melbourne for the next day's Half Marathon.  Contrast with another Victorian parkrun I've run in the past, Westerfolds, which is anything but flat - undulating including a steep climb up to the finish - a very different challenge to Lillydale. And the layout of the course varies.  Lillydale's course, as you know, is just over the two laps of the lake (and my GPS watch clocked "5.00" as I crossed the line). A contrast then with Highland, which has three laps of its small lake; and with Albert Park, with one lap.  I've also run at Diamond Creek which has an out and back route alongside, you guessed it, Diamond Creek.

And the people are different and I don't just mean the accents you speak - everyone is unique and has a personal story that could be told (perhaps I should have stayed at the café for longer!)

Talking about the people, what I love about parkrun is that it is so successful at being different things to different people.  I enjoy the variety of the different courses, and the thrill of getting to new events.  But others enjoy being at the same event every week. I note in today's results that whilst I was the most experienced parkrunner, second on that list was Carol Riley on 151 events of which 147 have been at Lillydale (Lillydale has only been going for 181 weeks and I bet that Carol has been a volunteer on some of the 34 occasions where she hasn't run herself).  And it would be unfair to only highlight Carol because next on that list is Debbie Woods who ran at Lillydale for the 144th time - out of her 145 runs. I'm very appreciative of the locals at every parkrun I visit because without the locals running and volunteering each week there wouldn't be a parkrun to visit - so thank you both and all.  And if you are ever in London, drop by one of my local parkruns.  The odds of me being there as either a runner or a volunteer is small (though I do do my share) but I guarantee that my parkrun friends who will be there on the day will make you as welcome as you made me today.

Some other shout-outs - firstly to the six participants who did their first ever parkrun at Lillydale this morning, perhaps the first of many.  And to Ewen Doonan who demonstrated today what improvement is possible on a second run - knocking over a minute from his time last week to be first finisher this week in 17:53.  Chasing Ewen round was second finisher and first female, Julie Norney Petrie, finishing in a very impressive 18:08 (just three seconds slower than her best of two years ago) and with a very impressive age grade of 91.36% (this is a better measure of performance than finish time since it takes into account age and Julie's result is the third best ever at Lillydale).

In all, 26 of the 167 in the field set PB (Personal Best) performances which, when you discount the visitors and new parkrunners, amounts to more than one in six.  But it doesn't have to be about performances - my bet is that the small group at the back of Saturday's parkrun saw and appreciated more of Lillydale Lake than I did, even though I was looking around me all the time.

Keep on running, (Roderick).

Lillydale Lake parkrun – Event #180

Happy 13th Birthday to parkrun. International parkrun day at Lillydale Lake started off very foggy indeed but turned into a great morning for a Run, Jog or walk. Thank you to all who wore their apricot tops to highlight the special day.

Lillydale Lake parkrun – Event #179

Fantastic Footy parkrun. What a wonderful effort by all those who showed their true colours this week. It was made all the more impressive by just how cold it was to be there in a footy jumper. Huge thanks to Naomi for the delicious yellow and black iced cupcakes!

Welcome to all our first-timers this week, and we hope you enjoyed your first run with us. And also welcome to our parkrun tourists - Krishna from Mitchelton parkrun in QLD, Adam from Lithgow in NSW and a special call out to Neil (also from Mitchelton parkrun in QLD) who participated at his 190th different parkrun out of a total of 252 events - our first green shirt spotted at Lillydale Lake!

Lillydale Lake parkrun

Congratulations to the latest member of our elite parkrun milestone clubs:

  • Paul Allardice (100 parkruns): Paul has been very loyal with 97 runs at Lillydale lake with tourist trips to Westerfolds and Mullum Mullum parkruns and volunteered an impressive 11 times with a PB of 18:33.

Lillydale Lake parkrun

Thank you Linda:
Linda van Duynhoven has been our volunteer coordinator for nearly 3 years. But a recent change in jobs means she is now working many Saturday shifts, so is reluctantly unable to continue in this role. Linda has done such a fantastic job in this time, and we hope to still see her regularly at Lillydale lake in the future.

Lillydale Lake parkrun

Awesome achievements:
Only one regular athlete managed a PB this week -

  • Des Keuken (43 parkruns): Well done Des, for taking 11 seconds off August's PB to set a new best time of 34:16.

Upcoming events:
Next Saturday is International Parkrun day, celebrating 13 years since parkrun was first launched in the UK. If you own one of the apricot parkrun shirts, please wear it next week for the annual group photo. And of course, it will be the first Saturday of the month, so it's also Super Saturday, where we will be asking for pacers to run to set times to help others achieve elusive PBs.

As always thank-you to our volunteers who made this event happen. Our photos this week are by Andrew Scorgie

Lillydale Lake parkrun – Event #178

How lovely to have a warm day on Saturday, squeezed in between interminable cold wet days of the winter-that-never-ends! And many of you agreed, with our largest group for some months now!

Welcome to all our first-timers this week, and we hope you enjoyed your first run with us. And congratulations to the latest members of our elite parkrun milestone clubs:

  • Joe Brown (10 junior parkruns): Joe is very loyal, and has run all his events at Lillydale Lake, starting in February last year, and he celebrated being presented with his certificate by running a new PB of 26.52 this week!
  • Jack Radley (50 parkruns, in the JM11-14 category): Jack has run 30 times locally (before this week), with 18 runs at Mullum Mullum and trips also to Wilson Botanic and Phillip Island parkruns. Jack has also volunteered four times, and has his name for several more turns on our Future Roster!
  • Jaimee Radley (10 junior parkruns): Jaimee has also split her events between Lillydale Lake (6) and Mullum Mullum (4) parkruns, and has volunteered twice already!

Finals Fever next Saturday:

You can't escape the Football Finals fever in Melbourne, regardless of which code you might follow. So embrace the madness next Saturday and wear your team's colours with pride - it doesn't matter if they are in the finals or not, now is the time to show your allegiance! (Anyone know where I can find an Adelaide cap in Melbourne???)

Awesome achievements:

Congratulations to everyone who managed a new PB this week - all 29 of you! Each week, we congratulate those who record a PB after 30+ local parkruns (10 for juniors), recognising that it is much harder to get a new PB when you're already run the course so many times. Lucky for us our juniors ran so well this week, as there were no PBs amongst the 30+ club for the over-18's! So special congratulations to:

  • Eden Hoenger (16 parkruns in the JW10 category): Eden's previous PB was set on her second run back in early 2016, and she's been close to it lately, so great job this week to take a massive 21 secs off and set a new personal record of 34.34!
  • Joe Brown (11 parkruns in the JM11-14 category): As mentioned above, Joe celebrated his induction into the Junior-10 milestone club by smashing his previous best by 2 mins 10 secs, and setting a new PB of 26.52 (his 3rd PB in 4 runs at Lillydale Lake).

Thank you to all our volunteers this week, and thanks also for those who added their names to our Future Roster sheet on Saturday - our roster is almost full for the next 4 weeks! Our photos this week are by Joshua Radley, who managed to catch lots of great shots of our parkdogs out and enjoying the warmer weather!
