Saturday 29 April 2017 – Ralph’s Return to Wythenshawe parkrun

2901parkrun1

Today was Ron’s 100th parkrun and his 92nd at Wythenshawe. To celebrate the occasion his old mate (they met at parkrun) Ralph returned from exile in Yorkshire to enjoy the chippings of Wythenshawe Park that have recently replaced the infamous ‘muddy passage’.

The above picture was taken near the finish, so I was puzzled not to find Ron’s name next to Ralph’s (the latter came home in position 309 out of a record 381), but I’ve now discovered that Ron finished earlier, in his 3rd consecutive Personal Best time, and must have jogged back out to meet his mate.

Ron went for years running in times of well over 30 minutes for the 5 km, but now he’s under 27 minutes and heading south. Well done Ron, again.

The conditions were good. Sue was close to her PB, and I managed my best time since October 2015. And shortly afterwards my current bout of root canal treatment was concluded. Hooray, but the tooth now needs a crown…

Today’s results are here – there are lots of great performances.
