Milestone Story:

So you may think what a coincidence that myself and Cat reached 100 on the same day! I’ll have you know this took precision planning once we realised we were close, we worked out dates to coincide with a birthday weekend too – Happy Birthday Cat. If you read last week’s report you’ll have read about Claire and Jayne. Not to bore you again but my story is similar. I’d run parkrun a couple of times but gave up and then in Oct 2014 I came back and fell in love with running. I’ve now run 100 runs, 94 of them at Graves. I went to Gav’s unofficial hill and speed sessions one Tuesday night some 2/3 years ago where I met Catherine for the first time. We discovered we had similar pace and got chatting that night (when we could breathe!) and agreed we’d be back the following week. We started running together at parkrun on Saturdays and then started to run outside of that. We matched each other quite well and often manage to motivate one another at different points, spurring each other on. We have decided we both love winter training and can often be found in rain, wind and snow running around Sheffield. 3 and a bit years down the line we are now firm friends, have run lots of races together and have even ventured out in ‘normal’ clothes for several evenings out. We have both made so many friends through parkrun and the Striders and I just want to thank everyone at Parkrun for being so great. Graves is definitely the best.

Parkrun, It’s not just about the run, it’s about building friendships!

Jo welcomed everyone to another beautiful but very warm parkrun. She encouraged everyone to give all the volunteers a rapturous round of applause. She encouraged anyone who hadn’t volunteered to ‘give it a go’ reassuring them they would find it a fulfilling experience.

We welcomed tourists visiting us including from Carlisle and Durban, South Africa!

Not many milestones today although I hear on the grapevine there may be some next week. A special mention to Leo Duncan for doing their 10th junior parkrun and David Sheppard for his 200th run.

Special belated thanks to Paul MILLEN for sorting out the printed barcode stickers. Extra special thanks from all of those who token sort from time to time, you have helped make our lives much easier!!!

Claire and Jayne have kindly offered to share their experience of how parkrun has impacted on their life. They came to parkrun as non-runners or knowing each other. Claire said she didn’t even start running until she was 45 years old. They came to find themselves pacing each other each week which led to them chatting to each other and becoming friends. They both expressed how parkrun had added to their lives being good for their health and emotional wellbeing. Their friendship has gone from strength to strength. They train together outside of parkrun and are planning on embarking on a 10km. For Claire and Jayne its much than about running its about their friendship. They now socialise outside of parkrun, enjoying gin afternoons (in moderation!) and afternoon teas. Jayne’s family and friends have become involved in parkrun too! Thank you so much for sharing your story ladies. I think it’s so important for people to realise how life enriching parkrun is.  It was great to hear your story and its obvious to see the happiness your friendship has bought you.

Parkrun celebrates NHS’s 70th Birthday

Event #312

DfPxYOeXkAAXxQ4.jpg-large

 

Green (Andy) welcomed everyone to a very special parkrun. It was all about parkrun coming together to celebrate the 70thbirthday of our NHS! Many runners wore white and blue to celebrate, others wore theatre blues, suits, nursing accessories.

 

Ollie, a local GP and the founder of Graves parkrun, said a few words about celebrating the wonderful achievements of the NHS over the last 70 years. He talked passionately about how to keep the sustainability of the NHS we must take a more preventative approach to health. Instead of fixing ill health we need to move towards creating health. We can do this by increasing physical activity and building community cohesion. Ollie spoke about letting people know about parkrun and the health benefits it can offer.

Green spoke candidly about his own experience of being introduced to parkrun. At a time where Green said he was eating and drinking too much and not in a great way, a friend suggested doing the parkrun route at Graves. The rest is history! Green met the wonderful Jo and Ollie (both NHS workers) and soon got hooked. Green soon came to discover the wonderful physical and mental benefits parkrun brings. He has achieved many PBs, joined a running club and achieved a leadership in running. One thing Green didn’t mention is the dedication, joy, warmth, and humour he brings to so many of us on Saturday mornings! Thank you Green.

 

Green thanked all of our wonderful parkrun volunteers. Jemma BABIKER, Jeremy BRAITHWAIT, Beverley CLARK, Kate DYMOND, Lynn FINDLAY, Richard GRAY, Dorothy Ross GRAY, Everything's Run GREEN, Marie HIPPEY, Angela JACKSON, Michael JONES, Paul MILLEN, Ann-Marie MULVEY, Jennifer MURRAY, Neal PATES, Gillian RAY, Carol SPEIGHT, Becci TAYLOR, Claire TODD, Susannah WALL, Roger WALTERS, Malcolm WARD, Sallyann WINSLOW

 

He also thanked NHS workers including Ollie for putting together the funds and resources for setting up Graves parkrun back in 2012.

 

He thanked our wonderful Event Directors Jo and Roger who are also work for the NHS. Mention was given to Roger’s commitments to championing mental health.

 

Green welcomed Couch to 5km runners (an NHS Initiative), Totley running club and tourists from as far away as France!

I’m sure the NHS has impacted on all of our lives. Some of us have been privileged enough to see first-hand the incredible difference it makes to people’s lives. Green talked about the NHS championing physical, mental and spiritual health. It’s also true of parkrun. This modern phenomenon that is improving peoples lives. You don’t even have to run or walk it. Just being part of something by volunteering can help people who may be experiencing a dip in their mental health or experiencing social isolation.

 

If you are looking to reduce your weight or increase your physical activity (or both) parkrun can help. To promote inclusion the tail runner has been renamed tail walker. It doesn’t matter what your time is, being part of parkrun is what matters.

 

Green summed up the feeling many people get after parkrun: “it's about Saturday mornings and that feel good factor, crossing the line with a smile on your face and the whole weekend ahead of you”.

 

What does parkrun mean to you? If you haven’t experienced it yet, come along and give it a try! I can assure you that you will meet some friendly and inspiring people.

 

 

There were 15 new to parkrun parkrunners today, we hope you enjoyed your first event and look forward to seeing you again soon.
