I did it and it was great. Dawsville Parkrun W.A.
Driving there It was 10 degrees only outside but the euphoria kept me warm. A very easy going and friendly bunch of people. Everyone was so relax and happy. We started at the cry of "go". It was 2.5 K each way, on a concrete path along the water. By the time I reached 1.7Km one mob was already coming back past me! Never mind. I made it and was not the last. I came 32 out of 37 with a time of 39.09 at 7.81 minutes per kilometre. My gender position was 18 out of 24. I was short of 0.099 of my PB. I should have given it a boost at the finishing line. Will do it next time.
One question: Age grade was 55.04% "how well relative to their age and gender" . What does this mean? For my age and grade I am running at only 55.04% of what should be my ability? Or taking figures from all over the world I am in the 55.04% mark? I don't really understand. Can someone enlighten me please?
