Good excuse to try a park run!! Believe me, my first one was last week and there's someone fatter, slower, older, faster, slimmer and yes younger than you oh and there's dogs, push chairs and people walking too. You'll fit right in...! At the end it's like you've run a race, cheering, clapping a fantastic buzz and..it's free!!! Just register before the event at parkrun.org.uk #loveparkrun 👍👍
Saturday is International park run day - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
I hope they see this... you could certainly do some marketing for them... good post!
Thank you unfitnomore I just have to share the love! I'm going to do my second one Saturday now I know what to do and where to go 😁😁
I'll be at my local one again. Loved it last weekend 🏃♀️🏃♀️🏃♀️
Cheers. I’ve not ran a Parkrun in months. Trying to get fit again and retraining for 5K. I’ll run walk it. Currently 10 minutes off my PB time, long way to go. 😀😀
I’ve done a couple and you’re absolutely right! They are fantastic community events with wonderful volunteers and the only thing you have to beat is yourself. I finish well down the order and walk and run but such a sense of achievement at the end. I usually do it with my daughter who goes on ahead and I know that my son will be doing it at the same time down in London. I am aiming to run the whole way at Christmas with my four grown up kids . The couch 2 5k programme will get me there I hope .
Ok now I’m even more excited for Saturday to arrive. It’ll be my 4th parkrun and I’m totally addicted to it!
Just heard the founder interviewed on the radio this morning. He sounds absolutely lovely. He’s astonished how it’s taken off. I’m happy it has - for him and for us! 🏃😀🏃♀️🐕
