Park Run: Whoo Knew Running Could Be So Much

Park Run: Whoo Knew Running Could Be So Much Fun

One kind of exercise we all enjoy, either on our own or as part of family fun is running. Whenever my husband gets a Saturday morning off work we like to do the Park Run free weekly 5k timed fun run event.

Having a family of 4 children we take it in turns to do the run. My oldest sons have tried it and the last 2 times we enter the run I ran on my own, my youngest son ran with his dad our second oldest took the pictures and my daughter cheered us on.

On a 100mtr sprint my youngest son who is 10 can beat me by plenty, but over the 5k distance I am still slightly in front. The first run we did I beat him by 2 minutes and the second one we did he was only a few seconds behind me!!

He worked so hard that day and even his top had to come off for the finish at the of the race. We’ve not been for a few weeks so I am looking forward to seeing what happens next time we get to do the Park Run, park fun day…

Our number one supporter who does the best cheering on…

    What a great thing to do. I love running and I'm hoping to start getting my oldest interested too 🙂 #CountryKids
