I think I may have mentioned it before on the Parkrun thread, but in short I am currently building up to a 5km run (coming out of a long period of not much exercise and also my body is built for sprinting as that is what I use to do). Once I feel that I have got to up to some sort of fitness level I will be attempting my local Parkrun in Shrewsbury and I will let you know all the details once I sign up and complete one :D

I'm Euan, 11, from Portishead near Bristol. I support City so if there are any Rovers fans on there (not just on here - in the world!) then screw you! :wink:
I LOVE the Tube and have already got about 5 routes for the Challenge, only one of which is (I think!) a record. I annoy everyone with my Underground knowledge. I am currently wearing a Hounslow West t-shirt, as that is my favourite station!
My favourite colour is red, and I like Ham & Pineapple Pizza!

WOW. I meant Bristol Rovers. And also, do Ipswich Rovers even exist?

Of course they do. They're not as big as Ipswich Town, but they're moving up the leagues slowly.

Good decision! Mind you, I'm not a massive fan of Yeovil! They're sort of local.
