About a month prior I had decided that if I was going to do justice to the half-marathon I should probably not race parkrun the day before. However upon checking the future rosters for all my local events it seems everyone else must have had the same idea for there were no tail-walking vacancies. I decided to check Bedworth, as it is the home parkrun of one of the parkrun discusion groups on facebook, and discovered they had a vacancy which I instantly applied for despite only having run the course once before.
