Guest Post: Park Life... by Pat Walsh

 ** Park Life **

A running story.πŸƒ‍♂️πŸƒ‍♂️

So few good running stories at the moment and I feel this one is worth reading.

27th March 2020 was start of Lockdown part 1 and Liam started a sequence of daily runs. The 26th was run 365 in a row and to mark the Year he planned a biggie for 27th March  2021.

Plan was to run around Dublin and visit as many Public Parks within his 5K limit. Doesn’t sound like much until research showed there were 31 parks to be visited and it would be over 40miles to traverse the route.

Why not.

Starting early and running solo with a back-pack, the mission was accomplished.

So well done Liam, fair play, fantastic effort and shows that we are only limited by our own imagination.

Long distance running takes courage and a little bit of insanity. Otherwise we wouldn’t do it.

Not sure where he gets it from. Maybe the Mother’s side of the family. πŸ˜ƒ
