The fact that I was away at a juggling convention didn’t mean that I was going to miss out on a Saturday morning 5km blast. After a late night and with my ears still ringing from a Scaramanga Six gig, I trundled off into Barnsley to see what their parkrun was all about. A nice friendly bunch, and a three lap course that came in just under 5km (OK, quite a bit under 5km), with a few hills thrown in for fun (nothing on Ashton Court). They even had a visitors book to sign.
I finished 41st out of 186 parkrunners, was 8th lady and 1st in my age category (which never happens, I’ll have to come again).
