Mini Marshall – Living Arrows

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth – Kahlil Gibran


Monkey’s Daddy loves to run. I’m trying to learn to love running as I prepare for the Great North Run in September. Whilst I don’t always enjoy running I have always enjoyed going along to parkrun – a free weekly timed 5k run held in locations all around the world. It’s run entirely by volunteers and there is always a real sense of community at the events.

This weekend one of our local parkruns celebrated their first birthday so we all went along to the celebrations. Daddy ran and me and Monkey marshalled. She was very proud of her high vis jacket and loved ringing her bell and cheering for all the runners – especially Daddy and other people she knew.

  1. The Great North Run sounds great being community focused. When you’ll grow older I’m sure you’ll follow your Dad’s footsteps and love to run as well.


  2. Monkey looks so adorable cheering on the runners at the local parkrun! I hope your training for the Great North Run goes well and that you are able to learn to love running too x


  3. Good luck with the Great North Run, I am taking part in the Colour Run 5K in June, like to do at least one run a year. Monkey looks really cute in her high vis


  4. I love park run communities! I haven’t been to one yet but definitely will do over the summer! Really lovely that everyone can help out too πŸ˜€


  5. Good luck with your run. It’s nice that you can all do something together, marshalling can be fun as well as the running… although not sure i’d say running is fun….
