Ran my first ever Park Run yesterday. When we lived in Scotland the nearest was 200 hundred miles away, so never managed it!!
It was a rather cold, damp and windy morning. Some kind volunteers explained what I needed to do and the route, which was several laps up and down the sea front. Volunteers had also worked hard to sweep away sand which had blown across onto the pavement! It was interesting to hear that there were quite a few people visiting from different areas.
I started off at the back and nice and slow. Chatted to a lady who was running with her spaniel. I didn't take Squiggy which was just as well since the route was narrow in places and he would get too excited and pull too much! Later I saw another lady fall over her dog - ouch, I know how that feels 😕.
The flat route helped my pace and I was pleased with my breathing - not too much huffing and puffing!
Lovely run, great volunteers, fantastic!
