My first parkrun

Set off with a little trepidation for my first Parkrun (Newark), daughter number 1 joined me. It was hard work but fun and very friendly. My time was 39.15 so not going to break many records but the only way is up! Daughter did well, finishing a bit ahead of me. The course is fairly flat, looping the football pitches and a little bit beside the river where you go down a slope and then up some well spaced out steps. Finished off with a hot chocolate from the cafe. We are both looking forward to next week!

  • Well done you (and your daughter)! You have cracked the first one (which is more than I did, thanks for the reply!) I think you should both feel very proud. Did you find it friendly and supportive?

  • Well done both of you. Bet the hot chocolate tasted great afterwards!

  • Well done Tara and daughter !

    Thats your first one under your belt and theres nothing wrong at all with your time . They are a really good event arent they ? Heres to the first of many ! :-) xxx

  • Thanks All, we did enjoy it and was nice to see some other people we know there too. Hot chocolate was great!

  • Well done Tara!๐Ÿ˜€

  • Well done :)

    I did my first yesterday too, tho I chose one all on paths - really don't like 'off roading'!

    I would love to do it with my daughter - will have to see if I can persuade her when she's home for the Christmas break

    Wish I'd thought of hot choc afterwards - sounds like a great idea.

  • Sounds like a plan jeleybelly! Daughter's seem to be willing to accompany their mums to most things if hot chocolate is on offer!
