#299 – One to Go !!

Twas a very good day to get moving doing Jells parkrun. What a morning. We had the Evolve run club visit, one of their team was first finisher Dion Finocchiaro (who also happens to hold the Australian 50km record of 2:50:49). The sun kept trying to shine on the 155 folks completing the 2 lake side laps. Special congratulations go to our newest 100 Milestone member – Kristi Lloyd – who also managed a Jells PB to mark the occasion. Well done to Kristi!! Reminder to come along and celebrate Jells parkrun #300 next weekend. There will be pacers for this event to help you to power those hills and get a PB – pick your pace or ..try a new pace!!

It was an incredibly rewarding experience being RD.. thank you for turning up walkers, runners and volunteers! See you next time" RD Catherine.

# 293 Celebrate togetherness with parkrun and a picnic!

Despite the arctic conditions we have been experiencing this week, we had 147 runners and 10 volunteers braved the chill this morning. Before long we were shedding the layers as we made a way past the lake and up the hill to the start/finish area to dump our jackets before completing our 2nd lap.

Afterwards we rugged up to celebrate #parkrun togetherness at our parkrun picnic, many off us headed to Madeline's cafe for coffee and a yummy berry and white chocolate giant muffin, the weather was very chilly so our numbers were a bit low however for those who joined in have a wonderful time chatting about all thing parkrun.
