Solihull parkrun -21st Jan 2012

My usual Saturday 5k parkrun, but with a slight difference.

As it was my Mothers 78th birthday we were up in Solihull for the weekend so Mother and I ran in the Solihull event. This is a normal event for Mother whereas I normally do Bushy (much flatter).

It was a brisk morning but rain held off till later which was good. the Solihull course is in Brueton Park and a 2 lap course with a bit of a climb on each lap. This is made easier by the luxury of having a tea shop opposite the start!

I came in 23:36 (44th out of around 140) and Mother finished in around 36 minutes.

It was a bit different running in a field if that size after Bushy at 900-1000 people! My 100 club shirt, combined with my sandals caused a bit of a stir.
