Don't rain on my parade - please!
Barbara Streisland had a popular tune “Don’t rain on my parade” You know where I’m going with this. Perhaps there’s a tick box on the race licence form that defaults to wet unless the dry box is ticked.
At least the rain had ceased by the time the race began and some of the recorded times were similar to previous runs.
Paul Douglas of Leighton Buzzard AC posted the fastest time of the evening with a time of 19:45.
First lady to finish was one of our regulars, Patricia Thomas of Ealing Southall & Middx AC in 22:45.
A commendable run was by Jane Sauer of Leighton Buzzard AC (running friend of the winner) whose “gun time” recorded at 30:26 but her real time was considerably faster. She was late and started 7 minutes 30 seconds after everyone else. She caught the sweeper at 2km.
However Jane was not so fast out of the car park at the end as she could not get the car started. Fortunately a team of willing runners, including a ranger who also ran, took to giving her a hefty push and the docile machine burst into life.
Despite the weather the attendance was up on the first run with some no-shows. Well done every body and we’ll meet again on the 10th July.
