After about a month of dithering, illness and general procrastination I finally did my first parkrun this morning! There were about 500 runners, some looking like they were limbering up for the Olympics, and some who looked a bit more my level. I ran with my daughter, who is doing parkrun as part of her silver Duke of Edinburgh award. There are some mean hills, one of which we walked, but apart from that we just had one short walking interval. My time was just under 42 mins, which I was pleased with, as that is faster than I have run 5K on the flat! At the end I had that W1R1 feeling ie about to pass out. Was amused to see that in my fairly early 40s I am classed as a veteran!
