parkrun number 50

Meeting new friends?  Gaining some wonderful running encouragers?  An opportunity in grow in running ability and confidence?  Yes, yes, yes.  This is what parkrun means to me.  What I thought would be a weekly timed 5km event has turned out to be one of life’s true joys.

It was a fun, chatty run with Leigh and Darren (famous for his wonderful photos).

Happy running 🙂

  1. Oh, congrats, Annie! I’ve become a Saturday layabout recently. You look amazing! Love that flowery T. Oh, and sunshine….I’d almost forgotten what spring feels like!

    • Thanks Red Hen 🙂 We are having such strange weather, one day warm to hot and the next cold and wintry. Yesterday a hot run and today almost got hypothermia heaving myself up a mountain! Freezing!
