Just back from completing my 1st ever Parkrun at Roundhay Park, Leeds.
4 months or so ago I was struggling to do the first runs of C25k and never thought I'd complete the programme, never mind be enjoying my running and joining in at organised events!
Anyone just starting out, keep at it, it really does get easier, and at some point you'll suddenly realise you're enjoying yourself and looking forward to your runs.....honest!
Parkrun is as good as I'd read about on here, everyone really friendly, people of all ages and abilities and running in a group, although a little daunting at first (I've been going out at night so nobody saw me up to now) gave me a bit of a boost and I think I've just run a PB. According to my phone I was around 28mins, eagerly awaiting the email with my official time/place. 😁
Happy running everyone. 👍
