A true picture

Preston Parkrun may 31stA couple of weeks ago I posted a picture of me running. To be honest it didn’t really look like me, as I looked ‘cool’ and like I was really running! This week I’m sharing a photograph taken at last week’s park run, which is much more realistic, (gurning face, muffin top etc). Also in the picture is my son, aka ‘the hustler’ with a cheeky grin. The week before he did his first Parkrun and challenged me for the following week, saying that he would beat me. We did most of the 5 k together, (though I had to detour to the loo after the first lap) and in the last mile he did have a few walk breaks. As we came into the last stretch, he put on a sprint which I was expecting him to do so I matched his speed. The photographer snapped us at the moment when he put in some extra acceleration and that cheeky grin is saying ‘ I bet you weren’t expecting this mum!’. He’s right, I wasn’t, but I did match him and we crossed the line together. The picture captures my surprise and his amusement!


About mawil1

Hi my name is julie and I took up running at the age of 46! Hence 'mawil' Middle Aged Woman In Lycra. I did it at first because someone asked me to do a charity run with them. I couldn't run at all, but pride wouldn't let me be seen to be unable to run so I started a walk run programme. I stuck with it and to my surprise I found that I liked it- after a couple of weeks of progress I was hooked! My blog is about my progress in running and how I fit it in with the rest of my life.
