Parkrun Milestone

Parkrun Milestone

I started c25k program two years ago next month, thinking can I do this! Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would be competing in running events. C25k has allowed me to meet so many lovely people at events and share things online and has been one of the best things I have done, it has given me fitness that had long deserted me and given me an interest or should I say obsession I never thought I had in me.

Today was my Parkrun milestone, I reached 50 runs at my home course at Havant, no PB's but still an enjoyable run and atmosphere as usual at parkruns. It was also Team GB day to celebrate our athletes from Rio. We had bunting and banners to use for selfies, what a great idea that was, I just had to get in on the act there! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŽ‰ Have a great weekend all and happy running!

  • What a lovely tale.

    C25k is amazing isn't it, certainly the best thing I ever did just over 2 years ago.

    I've more recently discovered Parkrun, getting a pb in my 17th run yesterday โ˜บ.

    Onwards and upwards hey Frank โ˜บ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ‘Œ xx

  • Thank you for your kind words, and yes c25k is great. Parkrun is addictive I'm glad you like well done on the PB! ๐Ÿ˜Ž x

  • Congrats, Frank-ntj ! I did my eighth Parkrun yesterday, got a new PB and am determined to keep going. I want one of those milestone tee-shirts!

    Well done, hope you get to 100! :)

  • Thank you SW, well done on your PB, time soon flies and it won't be long before you get a tee shirt. Happy running. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  • Congratulations Frank. I will get round to trying Havant one day, Parkrun tourism is a great thing and it's only up the road.

  • Thank you, Havant is a lovely run but it is a bit hilly. I have used Lakeside a few times which is also very nice. I will also try Southsea in the not to distant future, hopefully we will meet to say hello. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  • Team GB all the way, they did an amazing job. You're looking great Frank and 50 parkruns is fantastic. You and Siobhan are the only ones I know of who have achieved that.

  • Thank you BTYD for your kind words and team GB was a great idea for Parkrun, it just seemed to bring all the smiles out! ๐Ÿ˜Ž
