Mile End Park Run

Another heart-warming Parkrun with students from school. I ran with Abdul (24 minutes), encouraging him to push on through a stitch, which he nobly did for the majority of the run. Esther ran with the girls, and tried to explain to them what a PHD was. Heather coached Yasir, and other runners supported us all through our struggles.

Parkrun is an oustanding thing for students to get involved in:

  • Achievable (5km is accessible for all – nothing wrong with walking)
  • Free
  • Weekly
  • Friendly
  • Minimal admin from teachers – students just turn up and run!
The runners!
