Hi everyone 🙂
How’s your week going? Here things are as hectic as ever with all the work in the lab but no complaints at all! I am so happy I get to do something I love EVERY day!
So, a few weeks ago I attended a great event for bloggers here in London where I met some really cool people! Among them was Sabine from My life My challenges blog, who she introduced me to this incredible and FREE initiative called Park Run 😀
What is Park Run?
Park Run is like a running club… but free. Where people from all around London gather in the park at a specific time and run together. Either a 5k or a 10k depending on the park. You have to only register once and get your barcode which you can use in all the meets at every park. Then the Park Run volunteers will scan your barcode at the end and this is how you ‘ll get your official time for the route.
So last Saturday, I joinned Sabine and her friend for a 5k run at Brockwell park. The route was very pretty and scenic but quite hilly – which is great if you have actually trained to do hills … I haven’t … On a happier note though now i know where I can go to run some hill repeats 🙂 oh the joy #saidnorunnerever
Well without further ado here are my thoughts:
Park Run ROCKS! It is absolutely awesome!
Everyone is very friendly, there are runners from every age group (as long as you are above 11 years old), there are mamas with strollers, runners with dogs… The volunteers are very helpful and knowledgable! All and all I had a great time running with Park Run last Saturday and I would definitely do it again! After the race your results are emailed to you by the end of the day and the email looks something like –>
So for every London based friend I highly recommend park run, and I hope this initiative will also start in more cities around the world!
Selfie fun after the race with the girls 😀
The must shoe selfie of course 😉
And … this was my breakfast after! Who said conditional rewarding ain’t working right?!?!
I hope you all have a great day today – if you are not in London that is since it is pouring cats and dogs here for the past few days… LOL!
