Happy Third Anniversary Killerton parkrun

To celebrate Killerton parkrun’s third Anniversary we were asked to dress as Where’s Wally? Or at least to wear stripes.

As stripes are not a short dumpy girls best friend there is not one stripe in my wardrobe. This meant a quick trip in to Exeter last week where I managed to purchase two blue stripy vests and large red striped t shirt that I made two hats out of. Coupled with 3D movie glasses with the lenses pushed out and hey presto two Wally’s!!

Two Where's Wally's?!

The discussion in the car was about run tactics for the morning. I am sure everyone else who runs a parkrun just turns up and runs, not us always there is a lengthy discussion about whether we are going for a PB or not. Madam is suffering a bit with hayfever so wanted to plod and she wanted me to plod with her. I wanted to try for a PB, much pleading and denying was done in the 20 minute journey!

We had an anniversary birthday warm up which included me singing and twerking! Could I embarrass Madam anymore? I doubt it!!!

The run was muddy, rainy and windy. We ran the whole way together which was nice. No PB’s today! Next week.


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!

    Hehe… Wallies! I bet you all looked great! Happy birthday Killerparkrun!

  4. You both look very cool! What a great idea to celebrate the birthday – and a big Happy 3rd Birthday to Killerton parkrun!!! You are so not alone on the race tactics talk. Paul and our running friends talk tactics and plans during our running group runs, when we go to the pub for tea after a run, whenever we can hehe. Where is a photo of the twerking???

  5. Brilliant! Well done for joining in with the Wally running dress code.

    Haha! Love the outfits! Lovely that you both ran it together. Anyway, you couldn’t possibly see your way to a PB in those specs!
