OK... first Parkrun on Sat.. promise

After many months of thinking about it... I hereby promise to do my first parkrun on Saturday. :-)

- I've run the course many times (next to my office)

- Checked the weather... all looks good

- I've checked the stats... don't think they will have closed when I'm done

- No injury problems at present (nips better thanks)

- Will have a couple of days off after my run tonight (birthday cake tomorrow)

- If slow_rob recommends it... then who am I to argue :-)

Anyone else out there going to the Taunton parkrun??

Will update you all on Saturday :-)

Good luck, it'll be grand :)

Best of luck Andy. Let us know how it goes. I looked at my local park run- I think they are all training for the Olympics, so I have been a coward. I would love to know your experience , but I just know it will be good. here's to a pb. Enjoy

Yes, my birthday tomorrow...Would never have imagined I would be a runner 12 months ago! Did a run tonight and even knocked a minute off my 5k PB so have a target for Saturday. Still not overly fussed about records but it's good to see improvement.
