C25k Christmas Eve virtual parkrun and my 100th parkrun

C25k Christmas Eve virtual parkrun and my 100th parkrun

I did my first parkrun for my graduation run in May 2014 and today I did my 100th parkrun. I had never in my life run before starting C25k at the age of 52 and I'm still at it. I have run at 7 different parkruns and have enjoyed them all. I will never be super fast, still never managed a sub 30 min 5k, but hey, I'm out there every Saturday either running or volunteering. I love C25k and I love parkrun. Happy Christmas everyone and I really hope you first time parkrunners enjoyed the morning ! I'm the one with the darker clothing, and is that me with both feet off the ground ? Possibly...that'll be a first....
