Race eve

A new-to-us parkrun this morning…

…and then Geth and I went shopping in town. Geth bought some new Keyforge decks to celebrate having completed his 100th parkrun, and I am now the proud owner of a new pair of running shoes. My old ones were not coping well with my newfound daily running habit and had worn down to the foam! I will be getting a few new pairs over the course of the next few months, as rotating the shoes means that they don’t wear down as fast (apparently the shoes need forty-eight hours to ‘recover’ in between runs!).

We then went for a meal with Mum and Dad for pre-race carb-loading. I think I’m as ready as I can be for tomorrow – just a good night’s sleep needed now.

Inverness parkrun
The pop-up sign is a bit broken and sad-looking (I think it’s probably suffered the ill effects of some strong winds in recent months), but Whin Park is such a beautiful location for a parkrun!

Today’s earworm playlist:

Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack – ‘Tonight I Celebrate My Love For You’
Culture Club – ‘Victims’
Toto – ‘Africa’
Vera van Heeringen – ‘Riverside House’
Status Quo – ‘The Wanderer’
Duran Duran – ‘Shadows On Your Side’

And a bonus track that Geth was humming earlier:

Tracey Ullman – ‘They Don’t Know’
