With this week's Parkrun at Hatfield Forest coinciding with American Independence Day there was something of a party atmosphere and some of the runners had gone as far as dressing up for the occasion. I positioned myself at the 1.5km mark today so as to catch folks before they'd got too hot and bothered. During the pre-run briefing the participants had been warned I'd be lurking in this area so I got some great reactions as they passed by. After the field had gone through I then legged it back to the finish line to try and capture the sense of effort as people strained to shave a few last seconds off their times before crossing the line.
