Hello Everyone and happy weekend. Today is parkrun day, a free 5K event which takes place every Saturday morning all around the world. It is for everyone, slow, fast, able, disabled, big, small and everyone in between. Oh and don't forget about the super Mum's and Dad's who push their babies in buggies. You can walk, jog, run, run/walk, it's not a race, just a run in the park and loads of us here on Bridge to 10K do it religiously every Saturday morning.
Some of us may not be able to do a parkrun at the moment so until parkrun returns fully for everyone some of us will continue to take part on our own in a Virtual parkrun every Saturday morning called a (not)parkrun. Or if you are away on Holidays, prefer to run on your own, or do not have a parkrun close by you a (not)parkrun is perfect, please feel free to join in. Please post a little run report after your parkrun or (not)parkrun and let everyone know how you got on. The little run report can be done over a post parkrun coffee and treat/cake. (parkrun is all about the after run coffee and cake, and meeting friends old and new).
If you are a new graduate and would like to start, all you have to do is run, walk or jog at a parkrun or a 5K run/jog/walk (not)parkrun anytime today or tomorrow and write a little run report under this post. It's like a little community and it is good fun, sets you up nicely for the weekend. If you want to you can register on the parkrun website and you can log your 5K (not)parkrun. In fact you can log any 5K done during the week as a (not)parkrun.
For anyone whom has not done a real parkrun yet and if it is available to you, give it a try. It is the most wonderful community event. Saturday mornings will never be the same again.
Looking forward to hearing from all of you who ran in real proper parkruns and (not)parkruns. Happy running and have a lovely weekend.
Happy New Year everyone. There are parkruns organised on New Years Eve and New Years Day so you can do 2 days in a row. I’m away tomorrow morning so won’t be at parkrun but I plan to do one on New Year’s Day. Good luck everyone and enjoy your parkrun.
New Year and new start again. Looking forward to getting back to running again. It’s going to be tough. But I’ll get there. Really looking forward to getting back to enjoying running again.
Happy New Year to you and yours as well Damien - and we know you’ll be back running again soon, we’ll be right with you!
We know you’ll get there Damien and you’ll get back to where you were. I hope to too. I’m a good 3 minutes slower than I know I can be. Let’s show 2023 who’s boss! 👊
Happy New Year to you Damien! Thank you for all the work you have done keeping us HU parkrunners together this year. Remember to make time for you! 😍
Ah, you have age on your side young Damien! I have no doubt you’ll get back to where you want to be, but, at the end of the day, the thing I’ve concluded this year is that you should only go as fast as you enjoy. Happy New Year 🥂
A new year and new runs to follow Damienair. You’ll be fine. Happy New Year to you and your family
