A few thoughts – 17 August 2019

Amanda Glover was kind enough to send in her thoughts about this morning’s parkrun:

“Today I volunteered to be a tail walker at my local parkrun. I was privileged to share my parkrun with a fellow tail walker completing his 50th parkrun, dressed as a pirate and who serenaded us with music from Pirates of the Caribbean all of the way.  Another of today's volunteers will set off on his JOGLE next week. One of the nine first timers broke the course record, while another who I spoke with before we set off, completed his first 5K in more than thirty years. The inclusiveness of parkrun means that all of these achievements and those of the four hundred other people who participated today at Walsall are equally valued. This is the beauty of parkrun and always will be. I can't wait for next week...
Best wishes to you all.
Amanda”
