Cheers Scott and thanks for reading. I write this nonsense and and never know who actually reads them. And spreading the parkrun word is important to me - if it gets more people to try it out.
Two more irreverent blogs to be found this week:
Today's parkrun effort 'Successful failure; introducing the PW' and a special bank holiday one called '#I just ran, to say, I love you...#' both available for those who like a tongue-in-cheek read

clairep133 - many thanks - yes definitely the intention! :-) Perhaps we will pass each other one day, you going forwards, me going backwards! lol
Got a pee bee today at Roundhay parkrun. Times still not fantastic, but I wiped 29 seconds off my previous best! Roundhay has given itself the reputation as the worlds hardest. Its certainly very hilly!
We had our fancy dress first year park run in Bedford today, was fantastic, Pics onnfacebook if you are interested (I'm the clown!)
two new blog entries up this week - 1 parkrun experience from today and 1 video from earlier this week when I recreated my favourite running event: The 1066 East Hill Steps Challenge.
I do Bedford,Parkrun most weeks, great bunch of people and great turnout every week.
