Daughter’s first solo Parkrun

At Parkrun, all under 11s have to run with an adult. Over the nearly two years we’ve been doing Parkrun, my daughter has run with Daddy, her friend’s dad, her friend’s mum and her uncle, but mainly with me. At times, running with her has been difficult. She wants to run fast and once hit the dizzy heights of a Parkrun in 29 minutes and 30 seconds, but generally she would run at around 35 or 36 minutes. And she hated...

It’s been quite an enjoyable week and certainly a busy one, with the only downside a little bit of social media trouble! Here’s our week in pictures… Day 64 – Sunday 5th March – my son didn’t have football today, which made a nice change.
