I’ve had a great weekend.
Not only did people actually turn up and enjoy themselves immensely at #MozParty Newcastle, but I managed to complete the Great North 10k two minutes faster than a couple of years ago. No mean feat given my lack of training…

Anyone can attend or create a #MozParty. Go to webmaker.org/events and sign up for free!
I did just that when I created #MozParty Newcastle. Thankfully, I had the ‘Army of Awesome’ to help me:
- Steve Boneham
- Steve Bunce
- Ricardo Carolas
- David Easton
- Bill Gibbon
- Jacquie Kelly
- Andy Stewart
- Chris Wilde
Around 35 people attended altogether, the youngest being seven years old. It was a fantastic event with some great informal learning, sharing and encouragement going on.

Chris Allan has also written up the event on his blog.
Great North 10k
The long hill back up to Gateshead Stadium was a killer, but I reckon I can go even faster than 47:23 next year. In fact, I bet I can go sub-45 minutes in 2013!
