Saturday 16 November 2019 - Wythenshawe parkrun number 417





On a surprisingly sunny morning, we returned to parkrunning just four weeks after our last outing.

Despite the mud, we managed reasonable times given our muscles had forgotten how to run. I chatted with Michael, and Sue chatted to Alastair.

All very convivial, and it was good to see Mark H looking frisky at the end (though he did admit to having coughed up his breakfast at the finish!).

Zoe G was on her 300th parkrun, having started in 2011. Quite an achievement as she has had two babies during that time. She brought a balloon that accidentally went skywards, and the picture I took of 'Team Zoe' will also finish up in a 'cloud', of a different sort.

There was lots of cake today. It's a shame the obnoxious manager of the tea room is on a mission to prevent it being brought into the room, let alone being finished off there. What with dogs also being banned, the café is losing business. Never mind, it's still quite jolly in there after the run.

Today's pictures:
I was commended today on my colour coordination!

The colour coordination reminds me of the ingredients of a curry I made the other day.

I have a strong track record of colour co-ordination skills akin to what you demonstrated yesterday, so it was a shock at the end of my own parkrun to realise that (by complete freak accident) I'd managed to wear two tops that matched exactly in colour the purple and turquoise of my shoes. The outfit was only marred slightly by the fluorescent yellow hat!
