First Park Run

I did my first parkrun on Saturday in Daventry, Northamptonshire. I was really impressed at the turnout (given it was a very cold and frost morning) and the number of volunteers organizing the event. I'm used to running on tarmac, so it was a whole new experience running on multiple surfaces. The run is round a country park and reservoir with some lovely scenery. I really enjoyed this run and will definitely do more parkruns in future. The events are open to people of all ages and abilities. If you're on the C25K programme I highly recommend participating in a parkrun, you'll get lots of support and encouragement. Thanks to all the volunteers!
