What do you reward yourself with when you get a PB, and does it motivate you to run faster? As always, come and share your weekend exploits below the line
Possibly the only thing better than a PB, is pacing someone else to one. Admittedly, I suspect the pros pacers probably get paid more than a small cut of a pot of chocolate buttons, but still – it’s extremely satisfying. So you can just call me the Jenny Meadows of junior parkrun.
In fact, I did the parkrun double this weekend – Fulham on Saturday (and whatever-the-opposite-of-kudos is to the utter prat who finished behind me but barged in front of me and four others in the finish funnel, aggressively grabbed a barcode from the marshal, and ‘upgraded’ his time significantly) and then junior parkrun in Wimbledon Park on Sunday. Which is where I paced my six year old to her latest PB – 10:52 for 2k.
