big fun run

when I graduated c25k I booked myself on the Birmingham Big Fun Run and today was the big day. The run was at cannon hill park at 11:00, I decided to do the CH parkrun first, 'cos that seems to be what I do. I equalled my pb, which is slightly frustrating.

So I then did the fun run, which wasn't timed, so I used my garmin. Ran it in 28:50 :) I can't record it as a pb, but it'll do. On both runs I latched onto someone running very slightly faster than me and kept pace with them. I wondered if this was rude? What do you think? One lady found me after the run and thanked me. I think I kept her running as much as she kept me running.

Well done, fantastic time! Don't think it was rude at all, woukdn't worry about that. She probably enjoyed you there spurring here on :-)


Wow great times & especially doing 2 runs in a row!

My last PR (&PB) I "used" the woman in front of me as my target to beat. I didn't beat her in the end but I went over afterwards & told her what I'd been doing. I think she was pretty chuffed. I know I would've been if it was me.


Nothing wrong with that rm , I would guess it happens all the time :) That is a great time sub really well done


Well done. Glad you had a good day!


Well done you.

I've followed people who seem to be doing a good pace. I went to chat to one person afterwards and she didn't seem to mind. I'd be happy if I was being used as a pacemaker.
