Post Grad Parkrun: Return of the Gremlins πŸ‘Ή

Ooh those gremlins came storming at me head first quite early on today πŸ‘€ I KNOW it's not about how fast you run (no fear of that right now!) or how many people overtake you - I KNOW all of that .... but my gremlins are opportunists and they chose their moment! I did complete it, I didn't run the whole thing continuously but I'm pleased I did it - and even though it was a slower time than I thought it might be, I still feel like I've achieved something thanks to this programme! Ordered my Parkrun wristband ready to wear next week, and the week after that, and the week after that..... 🀞 Plenty of room for improvement and looking forward to it 😬😬

Well done for doing it! I keep bottling park runs because I feel self conscious about my sweaty red face and slooow pace. I want to get some more 5ks under my belt first.

Well Done Flaraflarkin, You did it and it doesn’t matter how you got over the line. Remember you are now on a passage of consolidation runs so kick those gremlins into touch. You are a graduate and a Parkrunner and don’t forget Jo Whiley’s mantra - β€œI love running β€œ
