Tamsyn's Strava stats from September 2018

I’ve been doing a bit of parkrun tourism recently, so it was great to do two parkruns at Southampton.  I’m getting ever slower, but it was lovely to be able to catch up with friends. It’s hilarious that it says it was my fastest time this year. It’s my fastest Read more…
