My parkrun history: click here

I first heard about parkrun from a couple of my mates who I play football with. I wasn't sure at first but since I live a 5 min jog from the park I had no excuse not to try it, a decision I have not regretted. Since the summer of 2010 I have done nothing else on a Saturday morning, and why would I want to? The atmosphere is great and I've made many friends among the regulars. Due to parkrun my attitude to running has changed from it being a necessary evil in order to keep fit, to being something I look forward to at the end of the week.
