I was thinking since I've already achieved a 5 k run, what could I do to make my graduation run on Saturday a little bit more special. I've heard a few people on here mention park runs, so I looked to see where my closest would be and its Edinburgh, and it happens to be on Saturday but looking at the times that people get its made me a little apprehensive, the average run time is 26 minutes. And the fastest runner last week was 15 minutes, yikes !
So now I am scared. lol.
It says its friendly and just for fun but 15 minutes to run 5k doesn't seem like people just out to have fun. I don't think I could handle being last. I know someone has to but, I think the knock in confidence might put me off running for good if I was last, ;_D
Also all the talk on here recently seems to be about how unfriendly other runners seem to be when you meet them, I guess I am just looking for a bit of reassurance.
Has anyone been to one of these ? what are they like ? would you recommend them ? Or is it better being out on your own ?
I'm still undecided.
