I’ve talked here before about one of the many joys of running is the friends you make. Real & cyber.
Since all runners are, by and large, super nice friendly people, I not only have “real” running friends – as in people whom I meet & know & run with – but I also have “cyber” running friends – usually running friends of running friends.
By dint of sharing their advice or tips or photographs, they have become long-distance friends I am just waiting to meet for real.
Like Sue Warrington, whom I “met” through my London-based mate Romit – they are in the same running group.
Sue, along with all her fellow Brits, is lucky enough to be allowed out to run & exercise in these locked down days, and it is runners like her who are like a breath of fresh air to we 100% locked-down-walas.
Sue sent me some AMAZING photos of her 5km run in Bushy Park.
Firstly – just LOOK at the weather!
And secondly – that empty road!
When I saw Sue’s picture of deer (below), I thought “What? MORE deer in London parks?” and since I’ve never been to Bushy Park, I Googled it.
The deer first, though:
Herds of both red and fallow deer, I learn, roam freely in this fab-sounding park, which is (I also learn) the second largest of London’s Royal Parks!
HOW have I never visited it? What a gap in my education!
And onto the post-Coronavirus bucket list Bushy Park goes 🙂
Thanks SO much, Sue not only for such lovely photos of the ‘ol home country, but also for introducing me to Bushy Park.
I thought deer were only in Richmond Park, but I am delighted to be proved wrong!
Enjoy your daily outing, Sue, on behalf of all of we locked down types.
