Milton Keynes parkrun

We had planned to visit Peckham Rye parkrun this week but Other Dan dropped me a message on Saturday morning to say that his foot still wasn’t 100% so I was on my own again. I wasn’t going to visit a Lon-done parkrun by myself so looked around the outside …

Rushmere parkrun

Time to test the legs again following Country to Capital and I picked Rushmere parkrun out of the virtual hat for somewhere to visit while Other Dan recovers from a foot injury. Rushmere Country Park is located at Leighton Buzzard and is managed by the Greensand Trust on a not …

Janathon 2015 – Day 2: Hell Freezes Over

Other Dan suggested Black Park parkrun this week because: It’s close enough to allow us extra time in bed. It was pacer day and he was going to try and help a friend go sub-20. We’ve run here before and we like the course. At 8am The Son casually mentioned …

Bromley parkrun

The tarmac paths of the Bromley parkrun winter course were a welcome sight for the concluding leg of our parkrun New Year’s Day double. Parking was easy, finding the start & finish areas was easy, and the run felt easy compared to our muddy adventure at Lloyd parkrun. Again, we …

Lloyd parkrun

A break from tradition as I left the safety blanket of running the Serpentine New Year’s Day 10k as part of the Eagles club championship series and instead met Other Dan for an early morning drive through London to deepest darkest Croydon. We’re slowly working our way to Lon-done (running …

Christmas Day parkrun

A Christmas Day free from The Son (enjoying himself in Japan), my grandparents (visiting family in Wales), and my mum (enjoying a cruise on the Amazon) so our first festive period together with no commitments. Mrs Dan announced that she would go with me to Northala Fields parkrun on Christmas …

Wimpole Estate parkrun

I’m still not sure how I managed to wake up early as planned and make the solo drive to Wimpole Estate parkrun. My parkrun tourism is littered with good intentions, those Friday nights where I pick a new location to visit but then wake up with a massive case of …

Pymmes parkrun

Other Dan said he didn’t have the time to stray too far from home. I asked whether that was Northala Fields parkrun or Pymmes parkrun distance time and he confirmed that touring was on to Pymmes. We’ve been saving this one for a while. It’s relatively near & easy to …

Beckton parkrun

The usual Friday night exchange of messages with Other Dan as we chose where to visit on parkrunday. I was shattered from a long working week and a planned peaceful Friday night at home descended into yet another evening of working remotely to deal with a last minute customer request. …

Alice Holt parkrun

All by myself, I went parkrunning all by myself. Other Dan is saving his legs this year so each Met League fixture clash leaves me with the choice of staying home for a nearby parkrun or casting the net further afield. This week I made the drive to the beautiful …
