Junior Parkrun - Hafsa's Wristband for her 11th run!

Junior Parkrun - Hafsa's Wristband for her 11th run!

My kids Hafsa and Zaky went to Junior Parkrun yesterday. Hafsa (who is 4 and a half) got her wristband because she has run 11 Parkruns which is the equivalent of a Half Marathon. Zaky (who is 2 and a half) ran with Hafsa during her 2nd kilometer, so ran his first ever kilometer. They were both very pleased with themselves. I have attached a photo of them when we got back home. Hafsa wanted to show off her wristband and Zaky insisted on wearing one of my headbands when he ran and kept it on for the rest of the morning!

  • Wow, amazing achievement, both of them... must remember to watch out for them in the Olympics in a few years time!

  • Give it 15 years and you never know!

  • Lovely story and photo :) Congratulations to Hafsa and Zaky :)

  • I showed Hafsa your comments and she was very happy!

  • Bless :)

  • What beautiful children you have Aftabs! It must be a great pleasure for you to run with your little ones. Well done all of you!

  • Thanks and it is great to spend time with them in a fun and ultimately healthy way.

  • Ooo they are so cute!

  • That's great to see, following in Daddy's footsteps then :)

  • What beautiful children Aftabs, you must be very proud. Fantastic achievement for your daughter at only 4years old! A proper PDM (Proud Daddy Moment) for you.

  • Arh Aftabs that's amazing running from Hafsa and to run one Parkrun let alone 11! And an achievement bracelet too which looks fantastic :) go Hafsa!!

    And Zaky looks very cool in your orange sweat bands - it's incredible his little legs ran a 1k with you too - another junior c25k'er ; or Power ranger well done Zaky!

    Congratulations to you all :)

  • I was surprised that Zaky manged to run the 1km. He enjoyed it so I will bring him along more often but he has 16 months until he can run his 1st official Junior Parkrun because you have to be 4 years old until you can register yourself.

  • That is lovely say a very well done to both of them. I bet they they were really pleased yesterday.

  • Wow, 11 park runs at 4 years old! And a 1st at 2. They are beautiful kids and look like they are having a great time.

  • That is too cute for words. You must be proud of them both - they look like they enjoyed themselves immensely. Well done for being such a great role model for them.

  • Thanks!

  • Aw Aftabs , what gorgeous children you have . Well done for setting them a brilliant example.

    Future Olympians there :-) xxx

  • Wow! Well done, hafsa and zaky :-)

  • Lovely. I see so many 30-40ish blokes out cycling (especially) at a weekend and wonder about their children.... I believe strongly in what Jacqueline Kennedy said "If you bungle raising your children, whatever else you do well in life doesn't really matter very much" It is lovely that you are sharing the joy of running (and I do mean the joy of running not just running which could have the opposite effect!) with your little ones... and thank you for sharing with us.
