This is the week that…the legend ran his 250th marathon!

We started the week with LFR's annual Christmas Quiz run on Tuesday. The winner's this year were Dave and Kelly - The Dogs Bollox! Kudos to Kelly who went from wooden spoon holder last year to this year's champion! Superb quizzing.

Fartlek returned for the last time this year and Dan put on a Gut Buster session for the Improvers on Thursday. The last Friday social of the year saw another pub stop, this time at The Globe for some tea and toast!

On parkrun day we had runners at Luton Wardown, Hampstead Heath, Linford Wood, Houghton Hall, Marston Vale, Salcey Forest and Rushmere.  One PB from our runners in Rushmere, from Steve!  Well done!  And mini LFR, Bear, was completing his first ever parkrun!  No longer in the buggy!

At home in Rushmere on the 28th we have some LFR milestones to celebrate. Beefy (Will - another Will) is running his 50th parkrun. James will be volunteering for 25th time. Jen (that's me!) will be volunteering for the 50th time (although that's not a real milestone and unfortunately I won't get another t-shirt *sad face*). And Clare Kleanthous will be completing her 100th parkrun! Come on down to run and support!

Captain Dan put on Part 2 of his Christmas Gut Buster on Sunday. Brutal fun in the cold. We may have moaned at the start, but we enjoyed it in the end!

And finally...our legend of a marathon man was out running on Sunday at the Portsmouth Coastal Marathon completing his 250th Marathon/Ultra Marathon! 250! What an amazing achievement. He did tell me that he would never run a marathon again after this. I think we all know this isn't true. Well done, JK. Legend. Hero. Extraordinary. What a guy.

That's all for this week! Have a wonderful Christmas, LFR! Happy running!
