You know I love parkrun right? I love the ethos, the atmosphere at many of the events and the fact it gets me off my backside on a Saturday morning!
One Saturday morning my running family came together to celebrate two fab men with their milestones. Sam was at 250 parkruns that day and his son 200 parkruns.
Valentines was the venue and this would be my third appearance there. I love the atmosphere here, everyone is so encouraging regardless of whether someone is fast and comes in first, jogging or walking the route. That’s the beauty of parkrun run/jog/walk.
I had decided I was going to run by feel, I had been ill in the week leading up to this and I just wanted to do the men justice and spend time with my running family. It wasn’t a PB but it was not my slowest time either.
Spending time after with these lovely people is the best reward after a 5k.
I will be returning to Valentines, more often as it feels so homely.
If you have not yet tried a parkrun I urge you to, everyone is made so welcome.
