First park run - loved it!

I chose my birthday for my first park run yesterday. The atmosphere was great and everyone was so friendly. I did it in 29:48, which I’m very pleased with! I would recommend park run to anyone considering it 😊

Congratulations on running your first 5K parkrun and running a sub 30 minutes to boot, what a lovely birthday present that was and by the way a happy belated birthday wishes to you.

Thank you! Yes, the sun was out and it was the best start to the day. I did surprisingly well in my age category (45-49). Next year I’ll go up a bracket, so that will likely help with results ranking 😆

Happy birthday! With such a good parkrun time you could perhaps aim for sub 25 minutes! BUT the main thing is you enjoyed it! 😸
