ROM Reading 5k parkrun report and all club parkrun results 26th May 2012

Hi Everyone,

Well done to all who organized the Reading Park run on Saturday, a good event I thought.

Having a lift from Rod with Alan & Steve, we arrived to the start, to find a Sea scout camp set up at the river where the start should be.

The start was moved forward to a shorter run up the woods area, 3 times round a shorter circuit and back and I seemed to enjoy the challenge.

Just 300m from the finish, thinking about a Mo Farrah type sprint, when a big b*tch of the 4 legged variety came out of the Thames, with a 4ft stick in mouth , 2ft each side, Made a run straight for me (I always get the nutter on the bus next to me, always). With my athletic prowess and practice High jump of 1.1m just recently in the Rosenheim left me in good stead to jumped over the b*tch but she had the last laugh when just caught my ankle on the way down.

With a stumble but not decked, recovered to sprint past a few to finish with a outright parkrun PB.

Talking to Mel at the finish about the sort of time she did, she said ‘with no watch I like it to be a surprise’. What a great surprise for Mel, a very good PB.

Here’s to the next one,

Eddie Giles.
