I have a niggly knee and so didn't want to run in my local parkrun today as I will go for a plod this afternoon. Decided to volunteer instead and guided runners on the course and cheered them on. What a fantastic experience it was. Supported myself by the team and given a brilliant task to do. Fast runners, first time runners, children and young and more mature all ran with lots of determination. I came away being thankful I discovered running not long ago myself, I can run and so awesome to be part of a running community! Volunteering is a great way to find out about ur local run, get to know the volunteer team and keep connected to the real reason u run. I am usually a running loner but it is good for me to push myself to mix with inspirational people! Julie 😍
