Well, I did it!....and as always you were absolutely right... Everyone was very friendly. I did feel a bit lost when I turned up on my own and everyone seemed to be chatting with a friend. I headed towards the guy holding the sign 'first time runners' who explained the course and the bar codes. We then congratulated a couple of people on their 50th and 100th Parkrun and off we went. It was really warm and there were a couple of small hills (which I barely noticed?!), but it was great. There were lots of calls of encouragement all the way through from the other runners. And a lovely couple congratulated me at the end and said they'd look out for me next week. . ..and I finished in 38 mins 29 secs, which Iam really pleased with!
My first Parkrun - update: Well, I did it... - Couch to 5K

Excellent! 👏👍well done you, great time😎.......welcome to the parkrun family..........and ahem....😉.....your new addiction.......😁🏃♀️🏃♂️
Well done. A parkrun PB has been set to be beaten : )
I noticed some people take it very seriously. Judging by the noises coming from the finishing line (and I don't mean the clapping), people really pushed themselves....I'm quite happy just to compete with myself for now 😀
Brilliant, you did your first parkrun and you enjoyed it and made new friends already. Well done you 😊😊
Well done - Saturday mornings will never be the same.
Congratulations to you Zebaddee1 on completing your first 5k Parkrun, well done, great time as well, I am so happy that you enjoyed your run today. 😊 🏃 Onwards and upwards to more parkruns for you. 😊 🏃
👍👏 well done, they’re great aren’t they and you feel like a real 🏃♂️ at last! Superb next step for C25K graduates as it replaces it with a new rhythm and challenge mindset! Enjoy!
