Just got back from my first Parkrun!

Wow it was tough! Some pretty steep hills but I actually enjoyed the challenge!

I got talking to another newbie and she was training for the Great North Run so I didn't try and keep up with her! But bless her, she waited for me at the finish line!

Everyone was friendly, the marshals are fab, and really give you a boost to keep going!

Not sure of my time as I was so busy chatting at the finish line, I forgot to stop my timer! So I'll have to wait til the times are posted later but I think it was around the 37 min mark.

I can highly recommend Parkruns to anyone who is thinking of trying them! Great atmosphere and fab to run with others!
