Well, I did my first Parkrun this morning. Been wanting to do one for a while but due to various circumstances, it just didn't work out. So, today, with hubby away and the car all mine I drove up to Cheltenham ready for the 9:00am start.
It's a nice course, three laps around the lake on pathway and on grass around the football pitch, and a lovely morning - not too hot, plenty of shade. There were over 200 taking part and as this was only my second time running with a group and on an unfamiliar route, I took it fairly steadily, trying to keep out of the way of the more experienced runners.
And I'm so pleased with my time 30:44! Apparently I was 1st in my age group - YAY! 46th female - Okay, good ....and 175th/212! - that doesn't have quite the same pazazz! Never mind, I know the route now and have something to aim for. I will be back!
And I'm leaving the tags, because they made me laugh out loud!! N'ice???
