For the second time in my parkrunning career, I have run all of the Greater London parkruns. I last managed the achievement in June 2012 and it lasted a grand total three Saturdays before the arrival of Crane Park parkrun scuppered it and by the time I ran Crane Park in August 2012, Barking parkrun had added another to the ever-growing list of London parkruns.
This morning, I met the ever-lovely Rachel (@fairweatherrun) at Osterley parkrun before I went off for a further three hours (15 miles) of long slow running along the Thames Path. As she has a 10k run tomorrow, she was happy to pootle round with me at a nice leisurely pace, giving us time to appreciate the tarmac, trail, wooded and grassy sections that make up each of the three laps, and also giving us plenty of time to dodge the copious puddles.
Co-incidentally, I also ran into another parkrun tourist who was completing the London set. I wonder how long our achievements will last this time.
