My #parkrun Journey

This year's running targets are:

  • To complete my 100th volunteer stint and get my 100 Volunteer T-shirt
  • To complete the 2022 Watchtree 5k Trail Series
  • To complete the Carlisle 5k Series
  • To run a 10k race every month of the year
  • To achieve ‘Single-Ton' badge (100 parkruns at the same location)
  • To achieve ‘Jetsetter' badge (parkruns in 5 different countries – hoping for The Netherlands & Isle of Man)
  • To run a double parkrun on German Unity Day
  • To run the Glasgow Great Scottish Run 10k
