parkdog of the week

Lilly Dog

My name is Lilly Murray.  I just love Saturday mornings when I can go with mum to parkrun.


Now mum and I aren’t the fastest in the pack, but what we lack in speed we make up for in heart.  I’ve seen the youngster pups at parkrun bouncing around, but I save my energy for the track and jog along at heel with mum on my best behaviour.


I’ve done around 45 parkruns and get so disappointed when we can’t make it. I like to run at Stockton parkrun and I believe it’s the best one.  We have a working harbour, so I can watch the ships and tugs, the park which is always pristine and the Stockton runners are just the friendliest ; it’s a great way to start Saturday mornings.  Mind you, I usually have to have a nap in the afternoon to get over the fun I’ve had.


My best time so far is 38.54, something I’m very proud of.  I have been a vollie many times, but running is in my genes and I just love to get out there with everyone.
