My brother doesn’t parkrun much due to working or playing football, but in November he was free so we met at my parents house and walked around to Jersey Farm.
It was the most beautiful autumnal day with bright sunshine. It also happened to be Jersey Farm’s birthday, so lots of people were dressed in animal costumes (farm themed).
Animal costumes, finish token, by the sign in the sunshine and some of the OH ladies plus my brother.
A few OH ladies were there too, so of course we had the traditional start line selfie (Emily is an expert at the selfies) before heading off on our own. I did run most of it with my brother but he had to stop and retie a lace so we didn’t run the whole way together. It was such a beautiful day, and afterwards we walked back and Mum cooked us breakfast. Definitely a huge bonus of a local parkrun!

The next morning I was volunteering at Beehive juniors, and when I got there it turned out it was their 7th birthday so they had hats for all the volunteers to wear. Lots of OH ladies were volunteering so it was good to chat and catch up briefly at the start.
I was meeting a parkrun friend (Branka) there too- we both volunteered and then went to parkfaff in a cafe in town after.
Mince pie slice and tea, and the two of us in our hats!
We went to one of the Herts Coffee Labs and they did a vegan mince pie slice so of course I had to sample it- it was delicious! We had such a long parkfaff it got to midday before we realised the time!
A very parkrun celebration filled weekend!
