So, Mile End parkrun is my ‘home’ parkrun in London. Since it was just me running this week I thought I would give it a go and see if those hills really were as bad as I remembered them. There’s a nice community feel at Mile End – they have pacer events, baking competitions, aContinue reading “Mile End parkrun review”
Short review this week. I’m back in Liverpool for research and interviews, so I couldn’t turn down a chance to run at my home parkrun, Princes Park. The course consists of two and a half laps around Princes Park, which is fairly hilly. The scenery is nice though, and being the only parkrun in South LiverpoolContinue reading “Princes Park parkrun review”
This week was the first ‘big trek’ to a parkrun; we chose Fulham Palace parkrun, which was a one hour journey door-to-door. I managed to get back into Tolkien’s Book of Lost Tales (Part 2), so the journey wasn’t a waste. The first thing that struck me about the parkrun was the amount of peopleContinue reading “Fulham Palace parkrun review”
This week, we found ourselves at the Southwark parkrun. For once I was fresh; not tired, hungover, nor injured. I was ready. The place was easy to get to, I got off at Canada Waters and walked for about 5 minutes, but there are closer Overground stations (I’m northern, how am I meant to knowContinue reading “Southwark parkrun review”
This week I ran the Hackney Marshes parkrun. After last week’s driving debacle I decided to walk, and so made the first-timer briefing. There was a lot of parking at the Hackney Marshes Centre, too. Everyone seemed nice, lots of chatting and apparently they go for a post-run coffee too. The course is simple – youContinue reading “Hackney Marshes Parkrun”
So, it’s been a while. In the last few weeks I’ve spent my Saturdays doing the Cardiff parkrun (terribly hungover), visiting my bestie in Lincolnshire for a top-notch birthday BBQ, and doing the Hever Castle Triathlon. I’ve been too busy to post about them, but suffice to say all the photographic evidence was terrible. So let’s moveContinue reading “Brockwell parkrun review”
So, there I was at the starting line, 9am, probably still drunk. The aim was to get round without throwing up.
There’s no carpark, but luckily I’m fast becoming a pro at squeezing into tight spaces
My to-do list is scary. Actually, there’s no single to-do list, but rather a range of different to-do lists scribbled over different apps. Things have gotten so bad that I’ve made a to-do list which comprises solely of ‘sort out to-do lists’. How meta. One of the things that’s been sitting on a few of myContinue reading “3 things I learned from Liverpool’s local election results (number 2’s a shocker!)”
Three and a half laps in a flat park, with wide paths.
