Back to Linwood parkrun 

After last weeks half marathon it was back to normal with the return of parkrun this weekend.  Even as we pulled out the driveway I was undecided between Linwood and Pollok as there had been quite a bit of rain this week and I didn’t fancy another mudbath at Liwnood like it was in event…

Springburn parkrun, July edition

Intermittent showers over the course of journey to parkrun this morning settled my dilemma on whether to use a rain cover in the buggy or not. The rain had eased to a shower so much so with a little drizzle falling another runner arrived into the park and joined me on part of the warmup to…
