Aliveandrunning Janathon January 1 2013

First day of Janathon! We went to Huntingdon parkrun (for 9 am )where the 5K race is held in Hinchingbrooke Country Park. This was the first of two special New Years Day parkruns, the second taking place in Peterborough at 10.30 .am. A lot of our chums went to both but we just did the one. It was a lovely course – undulating, grass land and woodland paths – and a complete mud bath. I’ve never run along such long tracts of churned up mud before. I haven’t got trail shoes and I seem to have trouble with balance in these conditions. I did a very slow time. Still it was fun and Lorna took some good pictures. The forecast was rain today but it held off until the finish of the race. The temperature was mild and unlike yesterday when I ran the Ely New Years Eve  10K at Little Downham, I didn’t notice the wind.

Here’s me at Huntington today on relatively firm but gluey ground. I pulled even weirder faces in the thicker mud in the woods plus the start of the race. Both photos by Paul Homewood.
