The early mist cleared rapidly and it turned into an idyllic sunny morning for Saturday’s Ashton Court Parkrun on 10th March 2012 with 13 members running. Colin Traer finished seventh in 19.08, 19 seconds faster than last week followed by Jacob Butterly just 1 second shy of his course PB in 20.35, Peter Mountain first M50 in 20.39 and Carron Downer, second M55 in 22.03. Sarah Everitt, returning after a heavy cold, was second lady in 21.47 encouragingly just 2 seconds outside her course PB while Tracy Allen was 3rd lady (1st W50) in 22.18 seven seconds faster than last week. First star of the day was
seventh lady Hannah Grout knocking a massive 56 seconds off her course PB in 23.17 (the speed/ endurance training appearing to work with impressive rapidity?), Helen Brooks reserving herself for her long Sunday run was eighth lady in 23.40, ever consistent Becci Colquhoun eleventh in 24.46 and Alison Engledew second W50 in 25.04, 61 seconds faster than last week! A cluster of members followed led by Sue Campbell fourth W50 in 29.25, Paul Burgess 29.28 and Emma Withers in 29.41. The second star of the day, however, was Denise Williams recording an impressive 35 seconds off her course PB in 32.18!
