Time to take a break from running as I rest my legs after the Richmond Park Marathon so back to volunteering at Gunnersbury parkrun. I love running at parkrun every week and heading to the café afterwards but there is also something incredibly rewarding in volunteering (while also going to the café after as well).

The Son was lounging in bed when I left the house and it’s getting incredibly difficult to get him running on a Saturday morning because he is so tired after all the inter-school sports competitions on a Friday afternoon. I know he’ll be back running again in due course.

Today I was a marshal and selected the first turn at the bottom of the park. I was able to direct & cheer everyone past as they streamed by on their way to the first km and then waited until everyone passed the 4km point for me to guide them around the last turn.
