Crane Park parkrun

Somewhere in a parallel universe… Bizarro Running Dan & Bizarro Other Dan talk early on Friday night to agree when and where to parkrun the next day. Both arrive early to meet before a gentle stroll towards the Crane Park parkrun start area, carefully following runners ahead of them wearing …

Maidenhead parkrun

Deep contemplation across Facebook messenger as we agreed which parkrun to visit this week. I made the helpful suggestion of “no plans other than let’s go touring somewhere new” while Other Dan plumped for Maidenhead parkrun or Aldenham parkrun because he has early plans for Sunday and didn’t fancy getting …

Barclay parkrun

The best laid plans… Other Dan picked Barclay parkrun so he could head off for karting afterwards. I picked a Friday night drinking in Brighton. I made the start line with a hangover just as the run briefing started. Unsure of the course, no idea which way to run, and …

Burgess parkrun

Solo parkrun tourism at Burgess parkrun for me this week due to Other Dan being away somewhere or other while The Son carried on with his unofficial attempt at the “teenager not moving from bed” world record. Other Dan had run here by himself recently while I was away camping …

Dulwich parkrun

The Lon-Done parkrun train got back on track as we made a visit to Dulwich parkrun. We had earmarked this event to run a fast time at – flat tarmac course with sweeping bends – but I’m out of shape so eventually just gave into ticking it off our tourism …

Gadebridge parkrun

A visit to the inaugural Gadebridge parkrun for me and Other Dan. We were unprepared (as usual!) so had the fun of my satnav taking us to a close by dead-end road and not either of the nearby car parks. Still, it meant a nice stroll across the course and …

Grovelands parkrun

Oh dear. Something new, something unexpected, something we’ve never heard of before at parkrun, and something that made me laugh. Other Dan was disqualified. That’s right, a DQ at parkrun. It’s a run and not a race. Still got disqualified though. We’ve got this running joke (no pun intended) that …

Highbury Fields parkrun

A solo jaunt through London on a Saturday morning to take in the 5 and a bit laps of Highbury Fields parkrun. Other Dan was off somewhere or other and The Son was fast asleep so that left me by myself. That’s until I bumped into fellow Eagle Robin. He …

Bracknell parkrun

This blog post has been languishing in my drafts folder for over a year. Nor sure why. I do have a habit of putting a draft together and then something shiny distracts me and I never return. My drafts folder currently mocks me with 48 unpublished posts. Oh dear. This …
