This morning, the weather app informed me that it was going to be wet regardless of where I travelled to on my park run tourism quest.

So I’m back home, I’ve refuelled, rehydrated (it was pretty hot) but I’m not quite refreshed – that’ll be a wee while yet. Now I reflect. Although my body objected to getting up early for the 8am start, organising the event with an early start was a wise move. Not only did it allow two ...
