I have a couple of opportunities to run my 50th before Christmas - both of which are not particularly "auspicious"
- but I could run it on New Years Day. My local parkrun will be doing a double run on Friday 01/01/2016. I think that date has some particular and unique vibrations that attract me - firstly it is a Friday (not your normal boring Saturday) , secondly it is New Year's Day morning ( when only Superheros can get up in time for a 5K run at 7AM), thirdly it involves two x 5Ks (one is local and then everybody races 20Klm by car) to go in the second one!!)
Can anybody tell me why I shouldn't do my 50th parkrun on 01 January 2016???
