Chelmsford Parkrun part Two

I returned to Essex yesterday to collect Madam after her week-long residential trip so this meant another opportunity to run the Chelmsford parkrun for the second week in a row. This week I forgot my socks so borrowed Madam’s school socks which created a rather fetching look don’t you think?


We planned to take it easy today, Madam so she could chat with the boys (!) and me because I was feeling fairly lousy with the onset of a cold and because my Mum told me to and I always do as I am told! Considering I plodded I was quite pleased with the result. Back to Killerton next week. Madam soon left the boys behind, running backwards at one point to encourage them to move faster. Nice to take the pressure off, of striving for a PB we can do that next time we are in Essex.

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

  2. lovely socks….i like the (‘boys!)”….i do the same but its ( ‘girls!….)

  3. Nice socks! I’ve tried the, “forgot my socks so go without” and that left me with blisters. So if these were my only choice I would definitely wear them! 🙂

    And the wrong socks can be just as bad too. You`re great for doing parkruns.

    Couldn’t you find the frilly ankle socks with the silvery trim…? Oh, the days of pleated grey skirts and t-bar shoes when putting an outfit together was so simple.
