13th park run would it be unlucky -- No

My 13th park run at Woodley this morning would it be unlucky? Apparently not, my first park run in my new Brooks shoes, conditions; chilly; drizzle rain; slippery underfoot on the grass but all combined to a new PB of 27:08 which is 11s faster than my previous PB and I was first in my age group VM60-64. Very happy πŸƒπŸƒπŸ˜ŠπŸƒ.

I also met ariday a fellow C25K and forum member who was marshalling today so very pleased to meet up.

  • Wow! That is a super speedy time! You must be so chuffed! Well doneπŸ˜€

  • Thanks SJ39 yes very pleased. I didn't set out with the intention of doing a PB I normally start quick and then slow down in the last couple of k's so today I was concentrating on keeping a consistent pace which obviously worked.

  • That's a fantastic time, well done! I'm still trying to get my legs to move quicker! I'm always about 15th in my age group, out of 16, ha ha πŸ˜„

    Love park run though!
