For those that don’t read my ramblings, today was our parkrun’s first birthday and we were encouraged to run wearing onesies! Like I need anything to make me any slower! 🐘🐌
But I couldn’t not join in so I wore an elephant onesie! Also spotted were Tigger, Superman, Picachu, some bears, several unicorns and others!
I was hoping for a chilly morning, but it wasn’t. 😳 The killer hill nearly defeated me today - OH MY WORD I was hot! But I persevered and slogged on up it, with people walking up it faster and my dog walking alongside me just to rub it in! Every fibre of my being was shouting ‘walk you daft woman’, but I had a stern word with myself and flat out refused. I’m proud, as it’s the closest I’ve been to giving in on any of my runs to date, but I didn’t! 👍💪
The reward at the end was a plethora of cakes to choose from. I took along some choccy cupcakes which were clearly a hit as they all went. 😋
I love parkrun. My dog and I have made some good friends - having a dog who loves anyone who’ll throw her a stick helps! 🐕 I’m tempted to try a different one soon as there are quite a few I could get to. One is flat - right now that seems very appealing!
So it won’t be anywhere near a PB today, that’s a guarantee, but what a brilliant morning! Hope you all had fun if you did parkrun this morning or another run today or tomorrow. 🏃♀️🏃❤️
