Sunderland parkrun: To the Ski Slope and Beyond, Silksworth, Thursday, September 9, 2010

Buzz Lightyear

Having left heavy rain in Durham , 3 Striders arrived to find it was a lovely sunny morning in Silksworth – Alan S, Alister R & new member – Buzz L.

Alan decided to take things very steady and ran with his daughter Amy, who was doing her first Parkrun. Good to see Alan back after all his injury problems this summer.

Alister looked lean, fit and raring to go for yet another PB, although he downplayed that idea. He finished only 5 seconds slower than his Parkrun PB – another great run.

Buzz needed to give the new Strider kit a test run before next week’s Great North Run and worked on the principle that it was better to be laughed at by people he knows, rather than to get himself arrested whilst running on his own around the roads & lanes near his home.

Though he finished hot & steamy ( literally), he was pleased that all bits ( incl. wings ) stayed on . Striders are still ranked 3rd in the club list although as a club we have completed more runs (just) than any other club. We need some more new runners to come along.
