Black Park parkrun May 2016

A weekly, free 5km run around a park? Are you sure? What?

 

Just sign up at the parkrun website, print off your barcode, turn up at your local run and off you go.

 

I started my parkrun adventures on the 21st March 2015, at Horsham parkrun, after completing 8 weeks of the NHS Couch to 5k plan. Since then, I've made some good friends, found a fiancée (we ignored each other at Kingston parkrun on NYD 2016), got fitter, lost weight and at times, I still enjoy running.

 

 Current parkrun goals:

 

  • Get to 250 parkruns. Now stranded on 257.
  • More tourism, next goal is 100 different venues.
  • 100 parkruns at Bushy parkrun - 58 so far
  • 50 parkruns completed at my home run Bedfont Lakes - 53  so far
  • Lon-DONE adventures - 40 London parkruns done.

 

 

 parkrun achievements:

 

  • 50 Club member - achieved at Bedfont Lakes 16/04/2016, just over a year from my first event.
  • 100 Club member - Achieved at Bedfont Lakes 01/04/2017, just over two years from my first event.
  • 250 Club member - Achieved on the 25/01/2020 at Bedfont Lakes. Four years and ten months after my first parkrun.
  • Cow Cowl member - 82 different venues so far
  • Volunteering at parkrun and junior parkrun venues, Bushy juniors, Laleham juniors, Chelmsford juniors, Hazelwood & Bedfont Lakes parkrun
  • Getting my great neices and nephew running at Chelmsford Central parkrun, Chelmsford juniors and some tourism trips.

Running around a park, it'll never catch on. 

 

Now into my third year of running around a park, I must admit, it is quite addictive.
