It was the very first Marlborough Parkrun this morning and my first too!! Just a 5 min walk from my house, the course is on Marlborough Common. Two laps. Perfect.....
We did it! Everyone was very friendly and supportive. We've been running 5k on the lovely flat railway line for a few weeks now. This was so different. Grass. Inclines- not steep but quite long and hard work! And it was damp too! For the first time Runkeeper decided not to work so had no idea of pace or distance!
We were near the back, as we expected. Amazingly time was 43:18. Not much slower than my flat PB!
Very achy now. Not used to running on grass and definitely have to run up more hills!
Photo is dreadful! A mix of sweat and rain... But we were still smiling at the end! 🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪
Going to volunteer next week then have another go the week after!
