Today was going to be my first Parkrun, but it is raining and not particularly heavy, but I watched the weather report this morning and they said it would be worse by 9.
I know people who run in the rain and I myself have been caught out in the odd shower, but I so wanted my first Parkrun to at least be dry. So I am going to postpone it for a couple of weeks as won' be able to do it next Saturday.
So I will still traipse around my 5K route around the avenues. Have noticed a new running hazard; conkers and their cases!!! I love Autumn and I used to love going out with my boys to collect lovely shiny conkers. We used to line them up everywhere, even arranged a display in my porch, my own tribute to Keats. Now they are both grown up and as a 'runner' I now see conkers in a new light, a potential accident waiting to happen! No more trying to achieve perfect form by looking ahead and not looking at my feet, I need to look down to dodge the blooming things!
Safe running everyone.
