I started Parkrunning with my week 7 run 1(including warm up/down walks) and absolutely fell in love with it!
I decided a couple of weeks ago to give something back and volunteer as without people willingly giving up their time Parkrun could not happen.
So today I was Tailwalker - ably assisted by my 13 year old son. We donned our high vis vests and set off at the back very glad to be walking rather than running in the heat! We sometimes have people at our course who walk the whole thing but not today so we did have to trot a couple of times to keep up
Very proud to cross the line in last position with a time of 53:06
If you are considering doing Parkrun but worried about your finishing position please don't let that put you off. You cannot come last and remember the volunteer at the back may be someone who just like you began running thanks to this wonderful programme x
