The volunteer

imageVolunteering at parkrun is an amazing way to spend Saturday morning, especially when you’re part of the Temple Newsam team, running the most satisfying and challenging parkrun in Yorkshire (and maybe the world).  As someone who has participated in parkrun so much, I really think I haven’t volunteered enough, so I am determined to get that 25-times-a-volunteer t-shirt this year.  Today, my wife Helen and I did the timing and we had pleasure to clock the first runner though at a fantatic time of 16:58!

As for Janathon, I am sure I could count the jog to and from the car at the parkrun but my goal is to substitute each non-running day with a gym visit.  Therefore, I did some gentle strength excercises followed by 10 lengths of the swimming pool to save my legs for the awesome (and soon to be legendary) Temple Newsam Ten tomorrow!
