My name is Barbro and I have always enjoyed running! Over the years I have participated in many fun and wonderful races, 10kms, half marathons etc. Three years ago, the year I turned 70, I had never run a marathon!
So I signed up, trained and ran the Stockholm Marathon, great fun, but hard! Then I decided that it was a bit “my thing” to run far, so I have continued and am now registered for my fourth marathon in Stockholm. So fingers crossed for me on May 30th!
parkrun, such a fun way to start the Saturdays! So simple, just bring your barcode, and get there ready for 9:30 on Saturday morning! Lots of lovely happy people of mixed ages, everyone starts at the same time, and everyone runs 5 km.
You talk for a while, then you go home, wait for the email with the results, time and placement and have almost the whole weekend left. Can a weekend start better?
