What a great week for running – for me, anyway!

I’ll be brief.

I had three wonderful, early-morning runs in Bois de Boulogne in Paris while I was there for business meetings.

On Saturday, I went for my usual Andover parkrun. I was on a good pace for 24 minutes when my friend, Jan North, was wiped out by a child buggy just in front of me. I quickly checked her welfare, but the buggy assassin had stopped to help her already. At the same point on the course, on the second lap, a man who was running just behind me fell and hurt his knee. I stopped to help him to his feet and check that he was OK. In the end, I finished in under 26 minutes, but I felt good as I had shown the wonderful parkrun spirit.

On Sunday, I ran in the Wyvern 10k and turned in a not bad time of 52:44. I also met a man, as I was running, who is from Perth. We ran together for a while and chatted about our desire to run the Perth parkrun on the North Inch some day.

These photos say the rest.
