A total of 306 runners took part at Fareham parkrun event #158. Louise Griffin had a great time there running a 0:34 PB here, equalling her fastest at any parkrun, was 2nd lady finisher and 9th best age-graded time! Husband Paul Griffin smashed 6:12 off his previous best here and this was more in line with his other parkruns.

Finally a total of 454 runners took part at Southsea parkrun event #287. It was one of the windiest I have run in so was pleased with my time. Emma Jolley was 1st lady and second best age-graded time. Michael Rae was 12th best, Steven Parker 15th. I wonder who had the best age-graded time? There were some strong runs in the wind including a 0:16 PB fro Richard Wade and a massive 1:36 PB for Karen Dale.
Volunteers included Katherine Newell, Andy Seek, Billy Jules Bilton and Liam John Bradshaw.

Oh the answer to best age-graded time was ......me! For those I haven't spoken to lately, my improvement this year is solely down to regular hill training added to what I was doing before.
