Haga parkrun #112, some sunshine from a grey, grey day

It's hard to describe the weather on Saturday in very positive terms - at the darkest time of the year, it was low cloud and grey skies that greeted the runners who joined us on Saturday. But nothing could stop the 50 parkrunners who joined us on Saturday, if we build it, they WILL come - of course they will!

With a dusting of snow having fallen during the week, conditions were a touch slippy out on the course - nothing dangerous, but worth taking it a little bit carefully on the corners!

Nevertheless, incredibly we had 4 PBs this week! Gregory Richards took 20 seconds off his best time with a 19:37, Anni Rajala came under 25 minutes for the first time and Hamed MP and Sandra Rubio both recorded a PB on their second run. Well done all of you, and well done to all of you who made it round in the cold conditions.
 
First over the line, and too quick for the camera, was parkrun regular and all-round nice guy Hector Haines in 17:13 and keeping it in family, the first lady today was Rachel Haines in 20:49.
