parkrun Saint-Paulin: Qu’est-ce que 2018 nous réserve?

L’idée de lancer parkrun en hiver a été bonne! L’an dernier, à pareille date nous étions toujours plusieurs à la ligne de départ les samedis matins. Depuis quelques semaines, on voit le nombre de participants diminuer, et qu’on le veuille ou non, ça inquiète plusieurs personnes. On croyait, plus que tout, que ça fonctionnerait. On…

Saint-Paulin parkrun: What does 2018 hold for us?

The idea of ​​launching parkrun in Winter was a good one! In January last year when we started Saint-Paulin parkrun, we had a very good turnout. This year and in recent weeks we have seen the number of participants decrease a little, and whether we like it or not, it worries many people. We are however confident with…

Why I love being the final finisher

I’m not always the final finisher at parkrun, although I am usually second to last. If Mary is running then she will have the honour of bringing up the rear – and it is an honour.   It’s an honour just to be running, on as many Saturday mornings as I can manage, in whatever kind…

This week’s snapshot

This week the country was split in two, and all because of the ‘Weather Bomb’!  All of our Eastern parkruns skipped Saturday because in some places it dipped down to -36C.  On the West coast however, it was much warmer, albeit stormy!   It was business as usual at Clover Point parkrun, beautiful scenery, a…

Third time lucky

I didn’t start parkrun with the intention of losing weight, I did it to improve my fitness.   I was 33, weighed 20 stone and considered myself to be a little overweight. But as I played five-a-side football every week I thought that running 5k would be easy. My sister had done parkrun before so…

The story behind the photo

At first glance it may just look like a happy dog flying through the air, but this photo tells a much more important story.   In 2015 I was given this special little dog by Hearing Dogs for Deaf People after losing most of my hearing suddenly. His name is Rusty and he is trained…
