So, finally managed to get round to actually doing one of these and have no idea why we didn't do it sooner! Really enjoyed running in a different place with loads of like minded people. All ages and abilities there, and the volunteers were so lovely, saying encouraging things to us just when we needed it (like 'legs are strong and lungs are strong which became our mantra for the last mile). We managed a PB for our 5k's so far of 29.08 but of course when you do one, you want to do it again to see if you can beat it. It appears it may become addictive! Would really encourage anyone thinking about it to go along and give it a try. It's the most enjoyable run I have done since starting C25K all those months ago. And all done before 10 am which feels like an accomplishment.
