Hope you are well, a few bits for you this week, news and photos - then a break next week as we are away!
Just to let you know I've done the roundshaw parkrun for the last four Saturday mornings - a bit earlier than 9 - I was passed once but haven't seen any others there - I am trying to encourage my two daughters to join me soon - hope all's well with everyone - rgds Nick White
Proudly wearing my T-shirt for my non Parkrun run - hopefully can volunteer and see you all soon
Not parkrun at Roundshaw Downs
Having dropped Matthew off for a Collingwood kids training session with Tim I decided to do my Saturday parkrun equivalent on the lovely Roundshaw Downs. It felt strange to be joining the Downs at a different point, although I soon saw Chris Curtis who was walking the dog which gave it a more familiar Saturday morning feel.
Having initially joined the main path, it felt quite daring to then take a different route and head off towards the woods. Once you are looking it’s surprising how many established paths there are, and it was lovely to get into the shade. When I later re-joined the path near the dog leg, I saw a number of other runners and spotted at least one parkrun T shirt in the distance. Sticking to a variety of the lower paths also meant that I avoided the hill past the woods!
The Downs were looking gorgeous; the sky was clear, there were great views across the city and an array of lovely flowers. It was nice to take a moment to stop and enjoy. A good start to a Saturday before it got too hot. I felt slightly guilty wearing my Parkrun T-shirt on a parkrun course, in case anyone thought I was making a point, which I wasn’t, although I do miss you all and hope that we will be able to run again together soon!

Best wishes to you all,
