#116 I made it into the 50 club!

No, not my 50th birthday – that is way off in the far distance!  Today I was presented with my parkrun 50 shirt, in recognition of completing 50 parkruns.

Walking back with my t shirt. Grin on my face rather evident!

Considering there is only one a week, I’m really quite pleased to have reached the magic number in just about 14 months.

I really have to mention the hugely inspirational Steve Way, fresh from his awesome London Marathon run – who ran parkrun this morning whilst clutching two massive balloons to show the 2:16 time he achieved.  It proved a good marker – we could all see his progress ahead of us as the huge, shiny balloons worked their way around the course. Not many would be able to do a sub 17 minute 5K, even fewer could do it when handicapped by balloons. Steve Way can, and did.  Well done that man!

Shiny new 50 T shirt. Next week I'll even get to wear it!
