PR Profile: Wayne Spurrier
Reason for joining PR?
I moved to Penkridge and didn’t know anyone so it seemed like a great way to meet people. (I was even prepared to run up hills to make new friends).
How long have you been at PR?
I’m part of the Couch to 5k class of 2019.
What do you enjoy most about PR?
I love the people and the support everyone gives each other. They’re a proper friendly bunch, and I do love a good pre-workout natter.
What is your best achievement since joining PR?
I don’t enter races but I wanted to run a sub-1hr 10k, and I’ve done that a couple of times (without dying).
What is your Favourite session?
The cool down, (but I also love relays and anything that involves sprinting).
What is your Favourite meal?
I go full-on Hungry Hippo for a nice Lasagne.
What is your Favourite drink?
Contrary to popular opinion you’ll usually find me with a nice brew in hand (maybe with a Vodka or Merlot chaser).
What is your Favourite holiday destination?
Croatia (particularly Dubrovnik) took my breath away. I’d go back in a heartbeat if anyone wants to pay for my ticket.
What would you sing on a Karaoke night?
Everything! But my go-to songs are Grace Kelly (Mika) and Shine (Take That).
What makes you laugh the most?
I was late to the TikTok party, but I’m often found chuckling to animal videos with human voiceovers. I’m easily pleased!
