After 9 weeks of running from beginner to 5k, I have finally plucked up the courage to do a parkrun. The park is a half mile jog from home so it seemed like an ideal setting but running with 700 other runners was very overwhelming to me as I don't feel like a runner! So I managed to dodge and weave around slower runners at the start and kept a good pace throughout. I ran all the way up the inclines and down again. It felt quite intimidating when the front runners came past on their second loop. So I managed the 5k in 32.03. I was actually smiling whilst running! Hopefully the cameraman caught my smile.
