Bo’s parkrun Report


It’s a special day, got no idea what day it is but I’m pretty sure it’s special.


Mum get up! It’s PARKRUN DAY!!
The cones are set up, just waiting for our ride… hurry up Kate.


Finally arrived at the park… smells, people, dogs… Hopefully no-one will notice mum put me in a Yoda costume for our May 4th – 1st birthday.


Talking, talking (I’ve heard all these instructions before, why do you have to repeat them EVERY week?)… hurry up I want to walk, run, smell, pee!


And we’re off… so many people, dogs and costumes and smells, the best of smells!
Hurry up Mum, let’s get to the turn around cone so I can explore.
Exploring, smelling, checking everything out, woah we’re at the bridge already.
Mum, you there? You doing okay?


Back off the bridge and on the home straight, more smells and exploring, man there are lots of ducks in the pond… I wonder what’s going on this weekend?


Finish line, running time! Ooohhh there’s cake, who will share with me? Extra large brown sad eyes all ready to go… who looks like they might share with me?


And I’m ready to go again… We just have to wait till next week!
