I’m rather late in the day with my post but I’m really excited to share my amazing news!! I had triple joy today! First parkrun, first run with company (Equi-geek and hundreds more!!😍) and first 5k completed (in 42.21) no walking involved!! I was absolutely buzzing!!
I arrived at the park to see so many cars, I was like woah! 😱 I didn’t know what to expect but there was far more people there than I thought there would be. I walked over no doubt looking a bit lost and dazed and out from the crowd came the glorious Equi-geek! Ah...we had a hug and she kindly showed me the ropes! Everyone was so absolutely lovely. What a great atmosphere! Equi stayed with me for the whole run. We chatted about weak knees and running joy, we laughed plenty and we kept going non stop until the very end! She was amazing!! What a wonderful lady!! I had so much fun! 😍
There was a point when I realised I was going to be able to run the whole thing! No walking involved! That was just the best feeling! I honestly didn’t think I was ready for a 5k! But wow, I can do it! 42 mins! I’m extraordinarily happy with that!! The support from everyone was phenomenal!! Even those lapping us were giving us encouragement along the way!!
Now, that was another amazing experience!! A triple, triple! Equi-geek! You are fabulous!! Thank you!! Here is a pic of two very happy running ladies!! ✊🏽❤️
