Sorry the run report is a bit late this week .... I honestly do not know where the week goes. The only good thing about it is that tomorrow is parkrun day already.


Something a little different this week inspired by two parkrun facebook friends (David Ferris & Martyne Girvan) who started a conversation last week about songs that make them happy. Using that theme I have attached a link below loosely related to parkrun...........Enjoy! See you all tomorrow morning bright and early.
