Hi, newbie here. After several (7!) weeks of procrastinating, i finally donned my 'running outfit' & set off in the car to the local Parkrun venue. Once there, my bottle went as the route was busy with runners, walkers & cyclists, so i kept on driving. Drove another 5 mins while i convinced myself i was going to do this, turned round, drove back, parked up & got out there. Two things worth noting - 60 seconds lasts a heck of a lot longer than i thought it did, & my worries about being stared at by people parked up in their cars while i attempted to jog, were unfounded as they seemed to mainly be concentrating on their McDonalds rather than looking at the beetroot in the fluorescent yellow t-shirt. So run 1 completed, no one laughed at me (apart from my kids as i left the house), had a few smiles from fellow joggers/walkers. Can't wait for run 2, might be able to relax more & enjoy myself.
