I thought it was a more easterly wind which doesn't help with Bournemouth Parkrun as when u go west its more sheltered from the wind. 23m 48s not my best but I wasn't sure how my youth foot would hold up.
Only tube challenger to be number 1 in parkrun

First finisher in the inaugural Stanford Estate parkrun in Hove, notable for being the first street-based parkrun that I've run! 28:20 finish, didn't push myself that hard, and saw a total of four people on my run.
Holder of the slowest recorded 274 attempt: 4 months, 1 day, 9 hours, 17 minutes, 32 seconds.
