Bribie Island Parkrun

Bribie Island Parkrun

Parkrun today was at the relatively new Bribie Island parkrun, the S.S. Koopa Trail Parkrun. Coincidentally, it is Belinda’s 333rd and my 111th parkrun. It wasn’t an early start for a change, as we were camping at Bongaree for the long weekend with the Macqueens and Nicolles. The run itself was nice. We ran 2 laps of up and back along the boardwalk. It was a little windy, but the overall temperature was perfect for running. I set a new…

We arrived around 6.30am, with plenty of time to have a look over the course and walk around. There were a lot of people out exercising, running, walking dogs, pushing prams. It was quite busy along the walkways. There was only about 80…

Emerald Parkrun

Emerald Parkrun

This Easter weekend has started off with a rather crazy challenge. We decided to get our ‘E’ letter for Parkrun. The only E in all of Queensland is at Emerald Parkrun. We jumped in the car at about 5am on Friday morning and undertook the 8 hour (or so) drive to Emerald. Along the way we made a few small stops. One photo opportunity was in front of the big watermelon at Chinchilla. Lorraine and Darren joined us for the…
