Gareth's Three Peaks Challenge for Leukaemia & Lymphoma NI
Citypark - 9 July - 14 of 22

Carrickfergus - 2 July - 13 of 22

Carrickfergus is a great setting for a parkrun - three laps around a pond - and a friendly set of Volunteers and runners that is proving to be typical of the parkrun community.

Since last week's run, I've had a twinge in my right calf and was unsure if I was going to be able to complete today.  A happy coincidence happened as I arrived at BT's Riverside Tower yesterday and met Kevin Stafford at the door.  We'd spoken at Wallace parkrun though we didn't realise we work in the same building, Kevin working for BR Flex.  I was looking for someone to run with me and Kevin's home parkrun Antrim wasn't running today.  Kevin kindly offered to run with me - and came well prepared with backpack, drinks and Kit Kat!

Carrickfergus-G

The objective today was basic - get around the course with zero damage.  So, with slow pace and multiple breaks, it was my Personal Worst today at 44:51, and that's fine.   Another of Northern Ireland's parkruns done with 13 now down, and 9 to go :-)

Thanks to Kevin for encouragement and, literally, keeping me on the right track.  

Today's photos are on Facebook or this blog's album.

So, next steps are physio & sports massage sessions definitely needed this week, then look forward to Citypark, Craigavon, next week.
