Today was my daughters 8th birthday and she wanted to run a parkrun with mummy or daddy. She had managed 1.5 and 2 miles before in cross country at school or road running with me. So leaping into the unknown we went along this morning. She had seen her friend run and cheered him on whilst walking the route with me and the dog. However they flipping changed the route today so that was a total unknown for both of us!. She was running really well up to 3.5k but then needed a few speedy walks and running. She had daddy to speed her up at the final 0.5k (daddy came in earlier) and completed 5k with me in 33.34. An outstanding effort for my little lady. Her 6 yr old sister ran/walked with nanny coming in at 39 minutes. Such a lovely relaxing run for me without worrying about getting a pb. Think we will be doing it again soon!
