Went for my first Parkrun today. Bit nervous. No one spoke to me so I just kept my head down. Got into a really good pace early on and was doing really well until a marshall sent me the wrong way and I ended up back where I started very confused and having only run 3.3km. I felt an idiot watching everyone rolling home and very cheated! The organisers were very sorry for me but I did feel a bit teary so went home with the hump! I will go again but I was gutted my first experience was such an epic fail! My new Brooks are RUINED too just to add insult to injury! Any cleaning tips gratefully received!
