Banana park run

On 26th May Jim and I decided to test out our banana costumes at Temple Newsam park run. It was a really hot day – not the best day to be running around wearing an additional heavy layer of foam!

Jim managed to run just 3 seconds slower than his Temple Newsam Park run PB?! Finishing in 19.04, however I think the heat and cumbersome costume had more of a negative effect on me! Finishing in 27.42, a whole 3 minutes slower than my course PB!

The good news is the costume is run-able, abeit quite awkward, especially around my head and face! – A few manor chaffing adjustments may need to be made! Let hope for a cold, dry day on 3rd July for the Canal Canter Marathon Take 2!
