Sun, Sea, Sand And A Parkrun!! Summer Fun

Sun, Sea, Sand, and a Parkrun!!

Happy Thursday friends. How are you today?

I am tired but happy. We have been on holiday to visit family at the coast and have had a lovely time.

Sun, sea, and sand. How happy does getting away make you feel!?

Sorry if you stopped by for The Wednesday Blog Hop Yesterday? I wasn’t sure how long we were going away for and I forgot to set up The Wordless Wednesday blog hop up before we went.

Creative Mondays blog hop was still open and I hope you linked up with us there instead?

Even though we were 160-200 miles away from home we manage to find the local Parkrun in Margate.

Yep, we took our running trainer just in case.

The only day I ran though ;).

trying my best

Margate Parkrun.

Running never gets any easier. Especially when there was a slight hill and the wind is in your face!

All smiles before Parkrun, even though it was over 2 miles warm up to the start.

How cool running by the sand and sea.

Breathing in the fresh air.

Loved every minute of it.

After running 2 miles before Parkrun we walked the rest of the way towards the start so we were not to try before we began.

Plus a little break from our warm up. I was already tired, lol.

A large gathering of people around the start.

People in running clothes.

Always a clue where the start is.

A few family running selfies before.

Smiles all around.

I was not too smiley after a 2 miles warm up, 3 miles Parkrun and a 2 miles run back. I can tell you! Furthest I had run in ages.

All good fun though. Over 7 miles in total. Well, a good training day is done.

Last fun selfie and then we were off.

Although it was windy and up the hill to the finish, I overtook 3 people so felt good!

Trying my hardest.


Looks like I am getting nowhere fast!!

I was trying though.

Red-faced. I must have been working hard.

2 and a half minutes slower than last week though.

It must have been a tougher course.

Margate Parkrun

All finished and time to go back for a nice shower and breakfast.
