I have been a long term parkrun lurker for a long time. A brilliant volunteer organisation doing great things. Didn't want to run until I could run 5k. So I started C25k on my 62nd birthday in September and today completed my first parkrun in a time of 38:36!! Very friendly, very well organised and I highly recommend to anyone to give it a try. So thanks to all at C25k for getting me this far and parkrun will now be part of my regular fitness regime. My target now ( if I stay fit and healthy) 65 parkruns by my 65th birthday!!
parkrun no. 1 done!!: I have been a long term... - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
Very nice time first time out... well done. I’m sure you’ll smash 65 out of the park by then as you enjoyed it so much... are they having one on Tuesday there? Merry Christmas and happy running.
Well done you and fantastic result
I'm just back from Elgin Parkrun and took my son along who suffers a bit from depression and he done it in 25:31 so I think I've got him hooked on it👏 my time is a bit slower at 32:11🐌next runChristmas Day park run....have a good one
Good stuff! You'll probably be well over 100 PRs by then, keep at it!
I did my first today too: 42mins with a tiny bit of walking as I’m still on week 8. Well done!!
Like davelinks, I think you could do 64 in time for your 64th 😸
Great running stevie!
🎅 Xmas Katnap 🎅
Congratulations Stevie99 on completing your first Parkrun in a very good time of 38.36, that will make Christmas 2018 very merry for you, I am glad that you enjoyed your run today with all those friendly people taking part, that is a very good goal to achieve for your 65th birthday, Seasons greetings. 🎄🎅
Thanks AlMorr - seasons greetings to you too
That's brilliant Steviej. I am yet to venture to parkrun but it will be a goal in the new year. I am sure you will smash your target
Very inspiring, I'm so looking forward to doing a park run. Only 3 weeks left of C25K and I'll be on my way I hope! Have a lovely Christmas
Excellent ! You have great goal of 65 by 65. Hope you can stick with it.
Well done Stevie ....and Happy Christmas 😀
good hear and what a great time...hoping to try my first one on 2019 but worried its too far for me still...really want to get a 5k run for charity maybe under my belt 2019 as never got a medal for completing anything 🙂
