Parkrun fun- with my lucky orange headband

Parkrun fun- with my lucky orange headband

Parkrun fun today..

Here I am sporting my orange headband, Leon wouldn't let me wear my matching wristbands :(

Beat my PB and did it in 32.26 :)

Mild hangover soon went

Spotted one other man with a sweatband ( blue), he also had a large beard

Took Leon to the special running shop to get him some decent shoes, bit worried about his growing limbs, and he has ended up with exactly the same as mine ( Brooks)

Husband and daughter came and waved and cheered us on and said nice things :)

Now enjoying a restorative glass of red and some Made in Chelsea ( I know its sooo bad but its sooo good )

Have fun everyone

  • well done on PB - ha ha my kind of girl _running on hangover and celebrating with glass of wine:-)

  • I am so naughty :)

    But life is definately worth living!!!

    Hope you are having one too :)

  • Great picture! Glad you didn't go for the beard look today! :)

  • perhaps I will next time, he had a really cool 70's vibe going on ;)

  • Beards and orange - yes!!! My mum's kitchen wallpaper was an orange and black diamond pattern - oh, that takes me back!

  • Congrats on the run and the PB. :) Just need a joke Zapata moustache and they'll sign you up for a 118 commercial. ;-)

  • Tempting, that could be fun on the next parkrun.. Perhaps a nice beard too :)

  • Trying to find something equally witty to say, but failing miserably. Well done on the PB - doesn't it feel good?

    My birthday today so maybe a glass or two myself later on. Birthday tea? Home made cheesy nachos. Not very sophisticated, but I'm not a sophisticated guy. Come to think of it, your headband wouldn't look out of place among a plate of cheesy nachos ... might be a bit chewy though :)

    See - I found something witty after all!

  • Happy Birthday!! Have fun x

  • Happy Birthday Malcy...hope you've had a good one??

    Yum...cheesy nachos sounds perfecto, sophistication is boring!

    I took out my cheesy headband for a 10k this morning, loved it. I don't feel like work tomorrow, I'd rather run every day and eat cheesy nachos with yummy mummy pals sporting my orange headband ( and matching wristbands) :)

    Enjoy yourself



  • I once bought a lovely orange cotton T shirt with white logo on it. It was smart (must have had a few glasses of vino when I bought it). Orange does not go well with my puce rose red colour I go during and after a run. :)

    Loving the pic and the headband looks good on you, was that the beginning, middle or end of your run!?! ;)

  • Thankyou Oldgirl...I have just bought an orange dress for a wedding and husband pointed out that my complexion looked a bit washed out- its one of those difficult colours

    The pic was taken about two thirds in, the first half is all uphill and really hard, and the second half is all downhill and where Pete took this pic of me


  • Damn, I was hoping you would say you were on your drive leaving the house!! Thats about the only time I would look that cool and full of go ;)

  • Do you think an orange headband makes you go faster??

    I did my first Parkrun after a half bottle of red the night before in 35.41. The next time thought I'd do better without the wine and only did it in 36.31...back to the red wine me thinks or....maybe an orange headband is what I need :)

  • Both... Orange headband for speed and a bit of random ,and a mild hangover ( depending on your tolerance) to give you 'an edge', and you're sorted. Red wine is definitely the runners tipple!

    Well done on your times that's fab


  • Thanks

    I'll have another go this week if my time goes down again then it's defiantly an orange headband and a whole bottle of wine !!!! ;)

  • Good plan, definite recipe for success!
