So, who is Phil Esterhaus?
There was a lot happening this week - a lot. Sometimes I find that if I had the chance to write down all of the things that came together in order to ensure that a parkrun happened safely, that I’d be writing all week.
[ Editor’s note: It’s kinda like Declan's Run Briefings - a little editing would go a long way ! ]
So, I’ll keep the Run Report short and brief.
Firstly - we had an inkling that Rafal would do his 200th parkrun, and while it is not an official milestone, we’d like to express our appreciation once again for the Polish Running Club Ireland for the way that they bring a community together …. and for Slawomir letting us know in advance that if we did not eat all of the food that he would not be bringing as much next time!
It would not be possible to run an event any week... so the crew who came together for Event #150 were simply great - from Tomasz - who brought food and was a marshal in support of Rafal, to Wally who brought the music, our Gaisce students - who did the first timers briefing and our two timekeepers who were volunteering for the very first time. The reports from all corners by the marshals were that they enjoyed it....so if you get a chance, give us your name or your barcode and keep the show on the road.
