Parkrun Alphabet Challenge: N = Northwich parkrun

Parkrun Alphabet Challenge: N = Northwich parkrun

One of my challenges this year is to start working my way through the Parkrun Alphabet challenge. For me, this is a fun way to try out some new Parkruns, whilst also seeing a bit more of the UK (and world!!) There are quite a few different Parkruns locally to me (within say an hours drive) and so it seems sensible to tick these off the list first. On Saturday, myself and one of my friends from my run club...Read More

Parkrun Alphabet Challenge: Parkrun Tourism

So... you may know from past posts that I'm pretty much addicted to Parkrun. If you haven't heard of Parkrun, it's a free weekly timed 5k that happens in parks all over the world at 9am on Saturday mornings. I've been going to Parkrun for a couple of years on and off, although last year I went most Saturday's if I could. It's a fantastic way to keep fit and meet other like-minded people and there's just a fab, supportive...Read More

Park Run Progress – 3 PB’s in a row (wow)

This morning I did Park Run and I thought I'd just do a quick update on how I'm getting on. :) Park Run has recently become a bit of a Saturday morning routine for me. I get up early (7am), have breakfast and head over to Delamere Forest for the start time of 9am. It's funny how much I've changed recently but I'd actually much rather do Park Run than go out partying on a Friday night (what's happened to...Read More
Park Run Delamere Forest…a new PB!!

Park Run Delamere Forest…a new PB!!

I'm so happy right now! I just came home from my second Park Run at Delamere Forest and I managed to get a new PB! Back in January, I went to my first ever Park Run at Delamere Forest. It was cold, dark, raining and generally bad conditions for running. Despite this though, I still managed to get a time of 33 minutes and I was so proud of myself. I haven't managed to get back to Park Run since...Read More
My First Park Run: Delamere Forest

My First Park Run: Delamere Forest

I've been meaning to go to a Park Run for the last 6 months (since I registered last year). I've been putting it off though, mainly because I was worried that I wouldn't be able to run the full 5K without stopping. I got into running about two years ago now, when a friend invited me to run a 10K Race for Life for Cancer Research. That was my first ever organised race and I had about 5 weeks to...Read More
