The second Trunce of this year (last Monday) saw Mick W stepping up to the plate with a course PB of 29:42. This is no mean feat - the course has unofficial 'clubs' for those who can break 30 minutes and for those extraordinary athletes who can break 25. Mick's 35/382 overall position betrays that his run was top-drawer. The top 10% of a Trunce field overall is not easily achieved. Many runners at this event are very hollow cheeked and have thousand-mile stares.
Rosie Wigg competed in the same event and scored a creditable 29/71 in her age group. Again, this is good going given the competition. Rose is steadily recovering from enforced absence and all seems to be going well. Her last two parkruns at Nostell (slow course) have been sub 25 minutes and indeed one resulted in a season's best at the venue.
Things are looking good.
