Gerald Story Memorial Fun Run, Worksop

Posted on

Sunday 30 December, 11:00

Decided to do this run rather than a fell race in north Sheffield. Ran with Rachael, Scott (both VRs) and Mandy. Took it steady enjoying the undulating course through forested scenery. A mix of tarmac and trail.

Distance: 4.91 miles

Time: 47:32 official

Graves Park parkrun

Saturday 29 December, 09:09

A couple of VRs coaxed me to get up and do this parkrun. My head wasn’t in it.

Did lots of warm up, ran very slow, and a long cool down. Nearly missed the VR photo.

My slowest parkrun to date.

Distance: 5k

Time: 33:03

Social run with Sheffield Vegan Runners

Posted on

Friday 28 December, 18:05

Seven of us started out from The Greystones pub, running up out of Sheffield into the countryside. Went up Porter Clough, apparently. I had no clue, it was dark, headtorches on and unfamiliar territory.

After 4 miles or so we picked up another 7 VRs at the Norfolk Arms(?), for the downhill return. Great atmosphere and an enjoyable run. Vegan pizza at the pub afterwards.

Distance: 7.59 miles

Poolsbrook parkrun

Christmas Day, 09:07

Lots of runners, about 14 of them were from Vegan Runners. Cool and overcast but not icy. Started in the middle, as it thinned out I started passing runners. Last lap I caught up with Mikk and Caroline and Mikk encouraged me into a sprint finish.

Distance: 5k: Suunto 3.13 miles

Clumber Park Trust 10k Race

Sunday 23 December, 09:07

Drove through heavy rain to Clumber, but it eased off to light occasional rain for the race. First time here, the course is three and a bit laps. Muddy trails.

Ran easy pace with Julie and Rachael. Lots of Christmas spirit from the runners and marshalls.

Jo provided coffee and a mince pie after.
