This last fortnight

19th January 2017
Well, the last couple of weeks have been special.

Every opportunity I have I go out with my camera. I have volunteered to take photos at a couple of parkruns and uploaded them to Flickr. For those who have not heard about Parkrun, it’s a 5k which is run by volunteers. Taking part is free and it’s a great way to get into running. They’re happy for you to walk round if you’re starting out. There are parkruns in many countries.

Last week I received an email from Parkrun UK asking me if they could use my photo with an article in their newsletter written by the lady in the photo, Dawn. I was more than happy for them to do this. Here’s a link to the article:

This was followed by an email with a request from the Oldham Chronicle to publish my photo then yesterday another email, this time Oldham Council want to use my photo.

It’s great to think that my photo is being used to try to encourage people to get fit.

As I type this I’m beginning to think I should start working towards doing parkrun. In fact, I’ve been talking about doing the Liverpool Rock n Roll mile in May. Think it’s time I got off the couch and started some light training.
