Braved my first Park Run

I decided today was the day for my first park run. I was a bit nervous on arriving but was soon made to feel welcome.

I got a 5k PB which I'm so pleased with but still a lot of room for improvement. Despiye it taking me 48 minutes there were still plenty of people cheering me over the finish line.

All in all, I'm very glad I braved it.

  • Brilliant achievement, I remember being so nervous about my first parkrun, I had nightmares! One that I turned up in flip flops LOL! Great atmosphere and people who love to encourage runners of all abilities. That is a respectable time too, nice and steady, wise for ur first public run. Keep us informed of your adventures!
