Have volunteered tailrunner on Xmas Eve, so a good chance for me to take an easier option for me, which is needed, as been feeling fatigued out on the road, so thought I'd stop the running in the week for a few weeks, instead do more Cross-Training, then maybe just at Parkrun NYE, and possibly get some new shoes, as think they're needed..
Tail runner at Parkrun Christmas Eve - Bridge to 10K
Well done guys ☺ Enjoy yourselves
I loved being tail runner! So many stories to be told at the back. There's not much talking done by the rest of the field as they save their breath for their run, so it was a chance to listen to people's reasons for being at the back. Injuries, the less able, with walking sticks or poles, and the new runners. Our parkrun now has two tail runners - one to stay back with the less able or injured and another to run with the new runners ☺
I'm just back from Stratford upon Avon parkrun and I was the tailrunner complete with a tinsel tail! I walked and jogged and encouraged a six year old called Martha and her Mum, and it took us about an hour, the first man home was going through the funnel as we were just completing our first circuit of three! Lots of fancy dress including a blind runner in a full reindeer outfit and a family of elves in brilliant costumes complete with bells. I hope everyone has had fun at parkrun today
