Lillydale Lake parkrun – Event #196

Another large crowd joined us on Saturday - 221 of you completed the two laps, way up on our usual average of about 170 each week. Welcome to all our first-timers this week, and special welcomes to all our parkrun tourists - Bernard from Pakenham parkrun, Noel from Shellharbour parkrun (Wollongong), and an even more special shout out to our repeat visitor Marei from Woodley parkrun (UK), who ran her 50th parkrun with us this week! Well done Marei!

Congratulations to our latest members to join the elite parkrun milestone clubs:

  • Ella Hoenger (10 parkruns in the Junior 11-14 category): Ella has run all her parkruns with us at Lillydale Lake, starting in December 2015, and her current PB is 39:26.
  • Andrew van Duynhoven (50 parkruns): Andy joined us in October 2015, and has run 39 times locally, with tourist trips to Wangaratta, Mount Beauty, Hastings Foreshore, Ararat, Albury Wodonga, and Chelsea Bicentennial parkruns. His current PB - set in great style on his 50th run - is 20:54, and he has volunteered an impressive 16 times! Thanks Andy!

And a very special milestones presentation this week:

  • Margaret Betts (25 volunteer turns!): Of her 84 parkruns, Margaret has run/walked with us 83 times, and visited Berwick Springs parkrun. But it's her amazing contribution as a volunteer that was recognised this week: Margaret has now volunteered 25 times so will receive the much-coveted purple parkrun shirt. Her favourite role is tail walker, but she has also volunteered as barcode scanner and token support. Thanks so much Margaret!

Congratulations to everyone who managed a new Personal Best this week, and don't forget to ring our PB Bell (at the scanning table) if you think you have beaten your best time. No-one with more than 30 local runs managed a PB this week - probably not surprising given the heat and humidity.

Thanks as usual to our hero volunteers this week. Our photos are from Zach.

Congratulations to everyone who managed a new Personal Best this week - all 33 of you! And special mentions to those who have run more than 30 local parkruns:

  • Andrew Vanduynhoven (50 parkruns): Anyone notice a trend here - Andy also ran his 50th parkrun this week, and also did it in style, taking a huge 31 seconds off his previous best, to set a new PB of 20:54. Woo hoo Andy!!

As always, thanks to our wonderful volunteers who made this event happen.

Lillydale Lake parkrun – Event #194

Well, what a hot start to our parkrun year. I thought I was a little crazy being out there, but I wasn’t alone. A massive turn out of 217 helped mark the start of 2018. Other than the temperature it was a beautiful morning to be up and active.

Huge congratulations to everyone who turned up. True parkrun spirit shown by all.

I’d also like to thank Mak and Zach who combined to provide the Zooper Doopers that so many enjoyed. It contributed to the fantastic family atmosphere afterwards where so many stayed and found shady spots on the grass to sit for a while (I’m sure it had nothing to do with it being too hot to walk back to the carpark)

Welcome to all our first-timers this week and a special welcome to our parkrun tourists Glenn & Heather from Inverloch, Lisa & Jim and Michael & Jack from Mullum Mullum, Debbie & Tracey from Pakenham and Belinda & Martin from Westerfolds parkruns.

Congratulations to our newest member of the super-elite parkrun milestone club:

  • Zach Wheeler (10 parkruns): Zach has run 10 times at Lillydale Lake parkrun. Zach has a current PB of 34:23.

December PROTM (parkrunner of the month):
This month's PROTM award was presented to Darren Moore. Darren has run 96 parkruns (90 at Lillydale Lake), with tourist trips to Markeaton (England), Chateau de Pierre de Bresse (France), Montsouris (France), Bairnsdale and Mullum Mullum parkruns. Darren started at Lillydale Lake in May 2014 and has a current PB of 24:42 and has volunteered 8 times. During December Darren ran 6 parkruns and recorded a PB for a 14 second improvement.

Awesome achievements
Congratulations to everyone who managed to improve on their own PB this week (there were 3 of you in the heat – an achievement all on its own), although not by anyone who had recorded more than 30 local parkruns:

Our hero pacers:
Being Super Saturday (the first Saturday of the month), our pacer singlets were out on offer to anyone prepared to give up their own aspirations for a PB, and instead run to a set time, to help pace those around them. This month, our hero pacers were:

  • Joel Johnson: paced at 20:00, recorded 19:55
  • Dodge Crawley: paced at 22:30, recorded 22:28
  • Chris Radley: paced at 25:00, recorded 24:59
  • Maria Lissenburg: paced at 27:30, recorded 27:33
  • John Thomas: paced at 30:00, recorded 29:53

Congratulations to everyone who managed a new Personal Best this week, with a very special shout-out to Mitchell Williams (126 parkruns). Mitch took a massive 28 seconds off his already very fast time, to post a new PB of 20.37. And he barely looked puffed afterwards.... Great effort Mitch!

That PB feeling
