Once upon a time I was a morning fitness person. Well to be honest I was a morning person. I would bounce out of bed with a grin and start the day. Then I was a lazy morning person and then I wasn’t a morning person at all. I would snooze for as long as possibly before rushing out of the house. Now things have changed and I find myself waking up at the crack of dawn so that not only do I get to work early, but I have done my morning workout before 8.30am.
Slowly I am getting back into running and I figured that nothing would be more perfect than for me to go for my first ever parkrun. In 2004 13 other runners got together on a blustery day in Bushey Park, Teddington UK. Now the family is international and has over half a million runners (plus me!)
