Unofficial parkrun


When going to parkrun it is useful, as well as remembering your barcode, to check that the parkrun is on before you leave home!

Full of parkrun enthusiasm from running Conkers last week with Louise and Alma and thinking it would be a good way of getting today’s run done, I was up and out to parkrun this morning.  Unfortunately there was no one there and I soon found out by checking the web site (thank goodness for smart phones) that no-one was going to turn up either because the parkrun was staying at its alternative festival venue at the other side of the island for the summer while the ground recovers and grass re-grows.

Fortunately I wasn’t the only one in the wrong place so in the spirit of parkrun we decided to run it anyway because I knew the route.  A sociable trot round with Gary and his son Jack from Newcastle and Mike from Birmingham picking up a few marathon training tips along the way.
