Albert parkrun was apparently just around the corner so we rolled up and asked for Tracey. Lee had received an email from her and she said that some of them would hang around after their official parkrun to support us. I don’t think either of us expected the welcome we received form Albert parkrun.
I’m unsure of numbers but it seemed like 60-70 fellow parkrunners. People were dressed as Santa, music was blasting and the whole atmosphere was electric. We were introduced to everyone and the money started to roll in. I’m unsure of an exact amount but we received something like £60 in donations from Albert parkrun alone. Unbelievable and we can’t thank you guys enough.
We were joined on the run by Stephen Moore, Mark Wilson and Ethiopian Paralympic silver medallist Wondiye Indelbu. This guy runs parkruns in 15 minutes, wow!
I felt great on this run and on every lap we passed a point where everyone cheered. This challenge is almost two weeks ago now and I still think about this particular parkrun every day. A massive thanks to Alan, Tracey and the rest of the guys at Albert parkrun. I promise we’ll be back soon.
Halfway point! Six down and only six to go!
