Glad to hear that parkrun have new t-shirt sponsors and that at last!!! volunteers are going to be recognised alongside those that run week in week out for free. As I have been arguing for years now, rewarding helpers’ commitment with a t-shirt won’t break the bank [as only for core teams/regular helpers]. I have plenty of t-shirts so it doesn’t bother me, but some volunteers are disabled/not able to run, and their input is vital to the success of the enterprise, so they deserve recognition as much as those that run.
I anticipate the 25 volunteer t-shirt will be a more exclusive club than the 50 runs t-shirt.
A little 5 miler today [to/from parkrun]. Bloody freezing. Back to the ‘proper’ training from tomorrow. And back to the ‘proper’ eating on Monday.
I decided today [what a sacrifice] that I will wear my GPS watch for every run from tomorrow, just so I can log all the miles this year [as they will be for charity].
