It’s a Saturday, and yes you’ve guessed it – that means it’s parkrun day!
Turning up this morning at Poole park we were told that there was a special guest running today. None other than former 5000m world record holder, the legendary Dave Moorcroft was there – stood outside the cricket pavilion!
I knew that I had to get a picture of the great man, so I strode up to him, said ‘Good morning Mr Moorcroft’ and asked if he’d mind being my image of the day! A top guy, he was happy to agree, shook my hand and posed for a few shots, and wished me a good run. He was there as part of the joininUK.org initiative – something well worth a look at.
As it happens, I didn’t do too badly. 24 mins whilst still holding back while I recover from my calf injury was much better than I anticipated. I must mention my wife Carole – who smashed her previous PB by a massive 45 seconds!
