“How did you hear about parkrun?”

I love hearing the answers to this question, especially here in Canada where parkrun is less than a year old, yet growing strong.   I originally heard about parkrun when I lived in England back in 2012. Living in the small town of Basingstoke, I joined a local squash club and during the Friday night…

« Comment avez-vous entendu parler de parkrun? »

J’aime entendre les réponses à cette question, spécialement ici, au Canada où parkrun est établi depuis moins d’un an, mais qui continue de grandir en force.   J’ai, originalement, entendu à propos de parkrun quand je vivais en Angleterre en 2012. Je résidais dans la petite ville de Basingstoke, où j’ai joint un club local…

A sense of belonging

“It feels like my body is packing up on me.”   That’s how I described it to my parents one Sunday morning in August 2015. This was after a few months of feeling strange, and regularly not being able to sleep due to a pounding head and feeling flushed. I took my blood pressure on…

Not too big, not too small, just right

This week we have an inspiring story from Ireland about one woman who was persistently pushing her comfort zone. At 42 she took up running, then parkrunning, and then organised her own parkruns!   Like a lot of runners I started later in life, with my 42nd birthday looming in 2008 I decided I needed to get…
