This morning a jog to/from Wanstead Flats for a 7 mile day. I missed the parkrun start by 10 minutes due to slow and tired legs! Still I’m at 44 runs so I am now on target [if I run rather than volunteer for the next 6 weeks] to get my 50th parkrun in under 5 years. Just! It was good to have some strong hands to help move a fallen tree that has been an obstacle on the course for the last 8 weeks.
So with one year ended and another beginning it is always good to have some little reflection time to figure out what went well and what ‘not so’.
Happy with 2015
