You might have read on here somewhere that the husband is into running. If not, he is into running.
Well, this morning he attended his 5th parkrun and of course, we went along just as we always do. 🙂
parkrun organise free, weekly, 5km timed runs around the world. They are open to everyone, free, and are safe and easy to take part in.
These events take place in pleasant parkland surroundings and we encourage people of every ability to take part; from those taking their first steps in running to Olympians; from juniors to those with more experience; we welcome you all.
He uses these runs mostly as training runs for the Half Marathon in September in Tonbridge and is steadily improving his time. Whilst that is all very well, I am not here to talk about that. If you are interested you can check out his blog here. 😉 I want to talk about my role there. You might have spotted at the bottom of my blog a little counter from RunningAhead. At the beginning of this year I started running a little in our local park. I don’t like running much and I am anything but fit, but I thought I better get into shape, all those biscuits and Sprite have taken their toll. Unfortunately, I have no willpower (unless I see something I want) and after only 6 runs I have sort of stopped. I DO want to get into shape so WILL take it up again, but can’t be bothered at the moment. It’s a disgrace, I agree. 😦
So, since I’m not running at parkrun I took on the role of photographer for the husband’s blog posts. parkrun lives off its volunteers and they approached me with the offer of taking the photos alongside, or instead of, their usual guy (when he’s off that is). Of course. So today was my first official day. I have just uploaded them and you can see them here.
When I’m there I have the Baba strapped to me in her bEco Gemini, so it is a teeny bit of a faff to take photos but it works so mustn’t grumble.
Anyway, it was nice to contribute. I won’t be doing this regularly since they already have two photographers, but I will, as I’ve said earlier, cover if they aren’t there. And I’m always taking photos of the husband anyway.
