It is still light for a short while after 8pm. Even though the nights are drawing in we can still make the most of some decent length days. Soon enough it will be cold and dark at 4pm so make hay while the sunshines as this is the way the position of our nation, in a global respect, goes. Summer to winter ad infinitum (not literally as our planet won't be around for all eternity) - rinse, repeat, wash. The only way to avoid it is move to another country.

So what's my point? Simply that as the days get shorter we have to bring the start time forward to match and keep things visible for all concerned. Additionally, the park gates shut earlier so we have a clear route without cars. This week we started at 8:30pm. I mentioned this in a few places, even on the post last week. I even told Rue Turner via Twitter a few hours before of this new time. So, how and why did he manage to miss the start? Well, I don't think Rue will ever know. Or let on. Either one.
That was my point. A cheap jibe at Rue's timekeeping.

As for the run, a new course record by first timer Sean Renfer and great to see more ladies taking part. Evens up the gender balance.

Next week it's an 8:15pm start. See you then.
