parkrun #68

Swamp Thing, pacing troubles, new recruit and puncture repair with scrambed egg. The Son cocooned himself under a mound of blankets and barely stirred when I floated through his room with his parkrun shirt. I left him to carry on his slumber and headed to Gunnersbury parkrun by myself, which …

parkrun #67

The Son spectates, chat & run, forgetful Other Dan, the wrong bread and parkrun fresh. The Son joined me at Gunnersbury parkrun to cheer me on this week as a spectator. I could come up with some elaborate excuse but he just did not feel like running today. I ran …

parkrun #66

No place like home, Baltic boy, Speedy Gonzales and the return of the egg that is scrambled. I have not run at Gunnersbury parkrun for a few weeks and it seems an age since I ran anywhere with The Son. We returned to our spiritual parkrun home this week and …

parkrun #65

Road trip, parking fail, km markers and onto Parliament Hill. Some more parkrun tourism this week as I met Other Dan at the Polish War Memorial and drove us to Upton Court parkrun. I had run the inaugural event with The Son just under a year back and wanted to …

parkrun #64

Broken rules, just in time, thou shall not pass, Eagles chin-wag,  low bridge, Lucifer, mud bath and surly service. Last week I came up with a new rule for attending an inaugural parkrun: if I can get there by car or public transport within an hour then it’s fair game. …

parkrun #63

One hour rule, late start, narrow lanes with bridges to be conquered, you spin me right round and the messy bacon roll. I now have my very own parkrun rule for attending inaugural events: if I can drive there in 60 minutes or less then it’s fair game for me …

parkrun #60

Osterley bound, Other Dan off-piste, gingerbread man and hot chocolate with marshmallows on top. The Son was sleeping and Other Dan was by himself so we did a time check at Hanger Lane and made the decision to head across to Osterley parkrun. Other Dan hasn’t had the chance to …

parkrun #59

Swamp Thing, Dan of the Dump, Gunnersbury 100th, we run in reverse and attendance record smashed. The Son was hibernating in his bedroom swamp so I left him gently snoring away and made my way to Gunnersbury parkrun via the local dump. Mrs Dan was giving me ‘the look’ and …

parkrun #58

Other Dan, chatterbox and could have gone to Osterley. The Son briefly stirred from his lair as I was getting ready for parkrun but it was only to tell me that he was going back to bed so would not be joining me. This left me to meet Other Dan …
