For a number of weeks a friend has been trying to encourage me to run Park Run, so today I took the plunge and joined her.
My friend is normally chasing a PB and can run our local park run in under 26mins but she ran with me to keep me company and to keep me going....and I certainly needed her today 😳 It was incredibly hot and after completing our first lap which took us past the lake, along the fairy trail, we were then faced with the very steep hill!! I decided to use this as my walking break and catch my breath before we started our slow and steady plod again. I struggled with the heat and took another brief walking break before running the final kilometre.
Finishing time was 39mins but I feel like I’ve got unfinished business with that route 😂 next time I’d like to get at least half way up that hill and no other walking breaks 🏃🏼♀️👊
Everyone was so supportive and cheered us on and my friend was amazing running with me. I’m not sure who was more excited when we crossed the finish line 😁
Hope everyone is enjoying the BH weekend and happy running!
