There are days when I am very glad to be “wonderfully, gloriously bonkers!” and today is just such a day.
Heaton parkrun provided the back drop. There is a lake and a hill and a golf course and a hall and today there was also a celebrity (the Ron Hill) giving out the long awaited 10- and 50-club t-shirts.
But more importantly, there was also an ‘athoner (the magathon) to meet and a reykjaviker to chat to. And while travelling hundreds of miles to run 5km is almost certainly bonkers, the company makes it wonderfully and gloriously worthwhile.
PS The other Ron Hill completed his 99th parkrun today. Fingers crossed, by this time next week, he’ll be a 100-clubber.
