I registered with Parkrun 13 months ago and today I finally ran one!
I'm away in Canada at the moment and the nearest Parkrun (Penticton, BC) only started up last November - it's new and very small! Just 34 runners today (our two local home Parkruns get 450-550 runners every week).
There are so few people, they rarely have a tail runner. Of the 34 today, myself and a group of 7 were all visiting from the UK; often there are even fewer runners!
So there was quite literally no hiding. But it was a beautiful and absolutely flat run alongside the lake, really well organised and I finally did it! A great start to the day for sure. Came 20th out of the 34 runners so not too shameful (we don't need to mention that many of the runners were with children, one guy was pushing a buggy with two kids in it, another was with a lurcher who she actually carried for part of the run ....)
Hopefully I won't wait another 13 months before trying my home Parkruns
