Attending a park run with my daughter made me realise how unfit I was, which motivated me to start the couch to 5k programme. I am now on week 7 and doing ok (I think!)
I attended the Hoblingwell course at St Pauls Cray. All the volunteers were encouraging and there were lots of walkers which helped. Park Runs are free and run by volunteers and nobody minds if you walk / jog, there's always a back marker so you won't be last!
I hadn't heard of Park Runs before my introduction to them by my daughter, which is why I am posting this!
