Many of you will remember how for the first eight months of this year I posted regularly about Parkrun. I loved taking part and improving my time; I loved that Grant was also involved in this activity; his health improved radically and he actuallly became the official "Tail sweeper". Once we moved to Caroline's house in the mountains and I opened the art shop, we struggled to get back there on Saturdays.
But here I was again; not taking part but volunteering. I am there again next weekend which is our one-year anniversary since joining Parkrun. Next year I will be taking part in the Parkrun.
Parkrun is for everyone: the children, the dogs, grannies and any one in between
As always I zoom in on the four-legged participants
Babies in prams being pushed by running or walking parents
This Dalmation pup (I've posted about her before) now just sits and watches at the start line . She reckons she's a spectator!
I called to this road runner asking if he would be joining the Parkrun on his way back . He flapped his hand at me!
The starting point
An enthusiastic pooch straining at the leash
You can walk or run the Parkrun
This little Jack Russell knows me well; I live next door to her; she and Skabenga are firm friends!
John Muirhead(furthest along with floppy hat) is the kind gentleman who along wih Ronnie, his wife, has offered me "safe haven" in their farm cottage . John remembers how he and Grant covered many Parkruns this past year, especially before John had his double knee replacement op and he and Grant took it very slow on this route
In the middle distance behind the pram parents, are Alan (88) and Ant(77) our two oldest Parkrunners and hikers
