I ran my first Park Run today and finished last but one of 152 runners in 40.3 minutes but am I dismayed ? Not a bit! When all the fit young runners disappeared over the horizon in front of me I briefly considered throwing my toys out of the pram and retiring, but encouraged by my noble son I plodded on. I am only on Week 6 so walked quite a bit but still finished on a score of 52% for my age (67) and gender (F) so realise tonight what people tell you all the time is true. It's about your personal challenge, and nothing to do with the crowd around you. Roll on next week. I'm going to crack 40 minutes!
