Dang. I was in Tampere this time last year. Only missed out by 13 or so months ;-)

Sorry, it wasn't a question, I was trying to explain the situation with examples. :-)

Been to Tampere dozens of times, that is a beautiful spot to run. It can get *very* cold in winter though (-25/-30C one time I was there.)

[When I told my son that there was a parkrun starting in Tampere, he responded 'well you've crossed the finish line enough times, now I think you're ready for the Finnish line'. Made me chuckle]

I event directed a parkrun 19 miles west. Now I event direct a parkrun 19 miles east. My one attempt to cycle saw me take a nasty spill and appear as the 'Zombie Tailrunner from Hell". After that I will continue to drive, while joining Dvorak in getting the shopping in, and probably a run somewhere in the countryside on the way home.

I do run to work every day though, so parkrun is my weekly commute (well, that and Hash House Harriers). And I've even managed to sign off on a couple of courses (the UK's current most northerly and one that will be the most northerly soon) while in the areas on other business. So I try to be good!
