A new Parkrun!!!

Now someone will have to explain me why I am soo happy that a new Parkrun event has started last week not too far from me - and it is on a trail in a wood! (the only PR I have been to is 40 minutes drive away, while this on is only 20.... )

I mean, I am still on the IC and am sure it is going to take a while before I can run again , cartilage tears are not a runner's best friend :( - but I am so happy that I have applied to volunteer. :)

Happy running everyone!

:) x

  • Wahay! Good for you. You can help others while you're out of action but stay in the loop and maintain your interest. It's so easy to get cut off from running if you're stuck on the injury bench. Very depressing if truth be told as you can feel so isolated and fed up. Just the thing you need then. Couldn't have come at a better time. Being out there and doing will improve your mood I dare say, and give you the impetus to keep going.

    I bet they'll be a great bunch. Have a brill time! How long before you're back do you suppose? Not long I hope x

  • I live in hope... have to to MRI scan soon and then I'll know :) x

  • ....also.... you'll be able to scope out the competition before you start and know who to target at your pace for when you can run again. Enjoy your parkrun in whichever way you can !!

  • How lovely -a convenient Parkrun on trails. You lucky lady! The last km of the one I go to is through woodland, and it's by far the best bit of the Parkrun. Really hope it's not too long until you're well enough to sample the delights of your new Parkrun. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • That's good! I go by tram to my local PR, and the tram stops in the actual park, so 10 -15 mins travel from home then hop off the tram and about 30 secs to start line, so easy, no worry about parking..

    Hope your back running asap..

  • Thanks - I hope too! You are lucky - one of the (not many) perks of living in a city I guess... If I had to take public transport it would take me at least 1 1/4 hour! (1 hour to walk into town, then the bus... but I love living out in the sticks :) )

  • Loads of fields & lanes near where I live, best of both worlds..
