Riddlesdown parkrun sixty-three

At Riddlesdown parkrun 63 both myself and mrs7t were able to run because my brother stayed with us over the weekend and didn't want to run - instead he marshaled and looked after the baby.

I was considering running the event at an easy pace but as it's been over 6 months since the last time that mrs7t and I were both able to run the same event, I decided that I'd run-walk with her.

The temperature was very high and the sun was shining brightly. I cope fairly well with this but mrs7t does not, so we ended up walking the majority of the course.

We continued our pleasant journey around the downs, that are very beautiful at the moment by the way. The paths have not been cut for a while and in places the grass gets in the way. However, this is one of the brilliant things about the course at Riddlesdown - It evolves as the year goes by.

Even though the run-walk was split heavily in favour of 'walking' I was still completely drenched in sweat at the end such was the heat out there. I may even have done a 'mobot' for the camera as we approached the end.

This may have been my last run at Riddlesdown until October as I will be volunteering next weekend and then going on a mini parkrun-tour throughout September before returning to Riddlesdown as a volunteer at the end of the month.
