Park run number two

That's another one under my running belt!!! Rainy? ✅ muddy? ✅ great fun? ✅

That's the second time this week I've been drenched but once you're wet, you're wet!!!

There were the gazelles, as usual...there were the kids...

And there was me...doing my W7R2...which I did..but that had finished as I'd just begun my 3rd and final lap...so what did I do? Well...for the last lap I ran the majority of it...and walked a little bit in between...spurred on by one of my friends who'd finished but spotted me labouring along...he was really good at motivating me to keep digging deep....I am going to tell you this but don't tell anyone else...I think I'm getting addicted to this running business...

Daddycav was stood in the window watching me...and there was a cup of tea ready for when I walked in..nice warm shower now coz I'm frozen to the bone...

I'm sorry but I have a happy little smile on my face again which will last all day!!! Yipeeeee!!!

Brilliant Mummycav - yep you definitely sound a bit addicted to me! As others have said before your story is a brilliant one to follow. You had some doubt and some upsets along the way, but look at you now!

Glossy...you are good enough for a park run, honestly...there isn't a 'good enough' ...everybody is running their own journey out there....enjoying splashing through the puddles with other people who are there for the same reason...I would urge everyone to at least give a park run a go...

Well done. I went to Parkrun today as well, although I didn't manage to do the run I had planned. But I did run about 3k of it - just waiting to see my time as I used my Garmin to measure the time I ran not the whole thing.

But well done you :)

So pleased to hear all the positive feedback on Parkrun. I will be doing my WK8 R3 next Saturday if I manage R1 and R2 Tuesday and Thursday. Hope there will be others to get me over the line. Struggled with last 5 mins of 25 yesterday.

Not to steal your show though you are indeed a true Champion !
