There's all your stats, posts and feedback too!…
It's another double monologue week from Nicola as she shares her reasons for life choices and ice cream. Mark runs on Strava like a fish and both take on the art of palliteration as they share your runs and arbitraries. As we take the first journey on the roadmap out of lockdown, both agree in the therapy of running. There's all your parkrun and (n…
This week, the buzz of the WCopB is in the air as the winning parkrun is announced. Nicola has a wee spot of trouble on one of her challenge runs, but still manages to throw down an arty Strava challenge to Mark. We hear of SCAM, pups, prosecco and palliteration from your emails and arbitrary posts. There's a book relay and parkrun webinars to get …
