EVERY weekend I say the same thing; “I’m going to do Parkrun tomorrow morning.” However every Saturday morning arrives and I’m in bed watching Sky Sports while I’m laid next to what I can only describe as someone* snoring as loud as that T-Rex roars right before he rips that man out of the shitter in Jurassic Park.
*She’s actually stunning.
This weekend, I’m going to genuinely make a conscious effort to try to get to Parkrun BUT bare in mind readers, the following.
- This weekend marks our two year anniversary.
- I fully expect at least a bottle of wine tonight.
It’s also important to realise that a week on Sunday is my first event. A 10 miler round Canterbury, which for those of you who know the area well, the route takes you to fucking Bekesbourne. Imagine sitting on the train from Bekesbourne to Canterbury East. Terrifying to think about running that at some point during the 10 miles.
You’re probably thinking “Yeah, but why is the featured image for this post a screenshot of a WhatsApp message?!”
Well, I want to thank everyone for their kind comments of support, comments of how they are enjoying the blog, the views, the shares, retweets and anything else you and your crew’dem might be doing. I also promise thats the only time this year I’ll use a word such as “crew’dem” because I’m writing this on the train back home for the weekend and I nearly just bump sicked over a businessman’s figures for the week.
I had an idea earlier while I walked to the train station. Multitasking I was, you see. I thought I could just email things like the Folkestone Gazette, Dover Express, KMFM and Heart radio, sharing with them my story and such other things, in the hope to get my story and idea out there with an interview or something. Anything that gets this blog more reads, and gets the kids at the end of the year more gifts to smile about.
WHERE IS THE SNOW?
I’m kind of a big deal on Twitter, but I don’t quite understand what to do on WordPress in regards to followers, getting my posts seen and read, connecting with people and so on. Of course there are tags to include onto your posts, which I do.
Guys, as always share the shit out of this post, comment to tell me you’ve read it. That keeps me going if I’m honest, the knowledge its actually being received and read. Comments here, Facebook, tweet me or even just text me. It’s all good.
But above all. Don’t forget, even if its just £1. Please help me and children out this year. I know it will make you feel good inside, smile and do a cartwheel out the office, or into the office.
Have yourselves a proper wicked weekend, I’ll be back Sunday or Monday to let you all know if I managed to reach Parkrun or if I had a bacon, sausage and egg sandwich in bed.
