Back in January, I was all geared up for doing as many Parkruns as I could and hoped to earn my 50 t-shirt within the year but, since the end of February, I haven’t been once. Not even to volunteer.
If I’m honest, part of the problem was that I was getting a little bit bored with the route. Don’t get me wrong, my local Parkrun is great, but running the same route at the same time every Saturday started to become a little bit monotonous. And then, with all the race training, I kind of just forgot about it.
However, now that I am pushing for longer and longer distances, I’m starting to miss my Saturday morning 5K runs, so I have come up with a plan. Not only am I going to get back into going to Parkrun again on a regular basis, but I’m going to try to visit as many other Parkruns as I can over the next few months.
While I am based in the South East of England, I think it would be quite cool to venture a bit further afield and, with a couple of Bank Holiday weekends on the horizon, there’s no reason not to set off on the Friday night and indulge in a bit of Travelodging at the same time.
So, I’m open to suggestions. If you have a Parkrun near you that you think is worth a visit, let me know in the comments and I may well see you at the start line in the not too distant future.
