As flickr seems to be about to kill off its free service (at least in a way that is useful to me), I figured it was time to move the pictures I have from the first Glasgow/Scottish parkrun, somewhere else
Pictures were taken by Paul Flood. Alas Paul was the first Scot to discover that taking pictures of fast moving runners, in a tree lined park, was a lot trickier than we expected. It was also very cold.
 – By favourite, I mean representative of the event and my memories. I cringe a bit at me-in-the-orange-vest
 – A couple are from after the first event (The C3 car and Burrell picture). Let’s call it artistic license.
I’ve been doing some work recently to gather my various notes and thoughts together about the start of parkrun in Glasgow and Scotland.
In the pre-social media days, I used to maintain this website as a full on blog. Alas it got to become a bit too onerous, and I took it offline around 2011. Whilst it’s back again in this form, I always knew I’d want to pull some of the old content through again at some point.
I posted them as a series of tweets, which are available as a Twitter moment here:
(14/n) I’m immensely indebted to @mrsfunkin and @davidmrowe who introduced me to it all in the first place. Also, as the ball started rolling, the support and gentle nudging from Crispy in his then new role as general manager.
