    Weekend Recap: A Sharp 5000, Northbrook 10k and a K&D parkrun World Tour.

Considering that parental duties of the last few months have taken priority then a 16:13 in far from ideal conditions is a great effort; especially as us road-runners don't get many opportunities to spike up and run on the track - a whole different ball game.
