Virtual parkrun

Virtual parkrun

Here's me and Madge50 after finishing parkrun at Cambridge. It was packed out, nearly 560 runners, and quite muddy! Naughty Madge kept trying to drag me and my shiny new pink shoes through puddles....We got a mention from the run director at the start - Mary and Sarah who are doing a virtual national parkrun for C25K - yay! We managed to stay upright, and finished in style, holding hands at the finish. No prizes for speed, but it was great fun, and I found it quite emotional thinking of all you other runners from this forum all doing your Christmas parkruns at the same time. I'll be doing this again!

Hi both of you

It would be great to meet you, I'm busy for the next few weekends but will be in touch when I can next run at Milton. A bit of mutual support would be great!!

Afraid I definitely can't spare any of my canine companions!!!!

Doh! We couldnt give a goldie all the attention they need (and deserve) at the moment anyway......not to worry 😄

Keep in touch, and we will arrange that meet up at Milton, I hope you enjoyed it - it's not always that busy.....

Very best wishes
