After last week's first run, I vowed I would return to Park Run, just to see how it goes, when you're not a newbie, not nervous and not spooked by the idea of all those people.
Great news I didn't suffer the faffing, nor the 5 or 6 trips to the loo. It was a lot colder but I did get the warm up walk done this time, which I think was a much better idea, than running from cold. It's a lot easier running in Park Run, when you've done it once I think.
As ever, the volunteers were amazing, encouraging and friendly and I improved my time, although I did have to walk a bit. I think like a lot of folk on here, I have learned to run on my own, and so for good park running, I'll have to learn how to run with people. So I think that's my informal plan now, to 'use' the Park Run experience to get used to people running.
