Parkrun a great way to maintain your fitness
SOME 11 years ago, Coral and I lobbed in Euroa and were immediately encouraged to feel at home.
A year later we were more at home here than our Melbourne bayside suburb of 30 years.
We remain deeply thankful for the ongoing warmth of that welcome and friendships that have flourished.
Five years ago, 65, and over 120kg, I was unfit to the edge of illness.
About then Brad Cunningham brought Fit Shop to the footy oval.
I have lost 30kg and I am now as fit as I have been in my adult life.
I am seriously grateful to Brad and coaches Klay, Dan, Joey and Kelly who have patiently provided encouragement all along the way.
Last May, Parkrun arrived in town and for reasons I don’t entirely understand, I signed up.
Since then I have somehow Park-plodded, Park-shuffled and Park-run the 5km course on more than 20 occasions.
Again I want to say thank you to the Parkrun team who cheerily give up their Saturday mornings so that we can race, run, walk and plod our way around one of the most gorgeous Parkrun courses imaginable - thank you team.
As we all race towards Christmas, Coral and I want to offer our heartfelt thanks to this amazing community that has become home for us.
Thank you Euroa, you’re an extraordinarily special place. Bob and Coral Bruce, Euroa had covered our village on the first weekend in October.
I did second hand books for nearly 10 years and was a volunteer for over 20 years.
Happy 25th Birthday to the Friends of the Euroa Library 1993 to 2018.
Robyn Neville, Euroa
