Chris Harvey, 66 years old, born in England 8th April 1953, arrived in Australia New Year’s Eve 1964.
Prior to starting Parkrun, I actually hated running, the only time I had done any running was because I had to when I was training in the Police Academy back in 1979. Running was all too hard. My wife, Debbie, started doing parkrun in 2013, sometime later a friend joined her at Parkrun, walking, and as he was a bit older than me, I was shamed into joining him.
On the 29th November 2014, I did my first parkrun (or walk) at Shepparton in a time of 41.26, and this was the start of my running journey. At my second parkrun I figured I could jog some of the way and after 7 PB’s in a row I was hooked. I have been very lucky to have been able to complete international parkruns in England, Scotland and Ireland and aim to do a few more in future. I have also enjoyed running in Japan and more recently in Spain in order to maintain a level of fitness.
On the 7th December 2019 I ran a Parkrun PB of 25.00, my aim now is to break the 25-minute barrier. I have a PB of 55.15 for 10kms and on my first attempt at a half marathon, at the SRC Running Festival, 2019, I clocked 2hrs 13mins which for me was very satisfying considering the injury interrupted preparation I had. I think my most enjoyable run to date was the 10 kms at the Melbourne Marathon Festival last year, although just missing a PB I felt so comfortable and running onto the ‘G’ is a bit of a buzz! I have not given much thought to events this year, my goal being to regain some fitness after my hand injury and see what happens, however I would like to run in Melbourne again later this year.
Joining the SRC has enabled me to become a more consistent runner and training with the club is much more enjoyable than training alone. I think the inclusive nature of SRC without regard for age, gender or ability is what makes it a successful and enjoyable club to belong to.
As for pizza’s, olives must be sliced, anchovies are a must and pineapple is definitely out.

The road to Nagoya – part 25
With a cast of thousands supporting Tara on her Sunday long run anywhere from 2 km to 15 km. I am now pondering how am I going to preview Tara’s blog. Hmmm what can I say? I guess you will just have to read it for yourself here, Tara’s blog.
