I did my first Parkrun today at Brundall, with my 60something year old friend. Had a great time and everybody was really friendly, especially the people with the dogs and the lady who had run 100+ marathons!
I haven't run with people since a Race for Life years and years ago (wish I could remember my time) and it was really strange. Everybody headed off like a bat out of Hell then a large proportion slowed down! It did feel good passing people though... well, not that many people.
The only thing that spoilt it a bit was that I seem to have developed a urine retention issue! Been googling solutions and preventative measures but really not sure what to try for next week's 10km.
Unfortunately my printer ran out of ink and I couldn't print my barcode last night so I don't get an official time but my own timing says it was my fastest 5km
