A 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!
