a whole new language

Following Tuesday success I have decided that I'm going to give the Parkrun a go tomorrow. By saying it outloud on here I'll have to go!!!. Hope my shins aren't aching quite so much by the morning (ice packs later) and the small blister I have on my heel (work shoes should be banned!) won't bother me!!!

Am a little nervous.......ok, ok I am VERY nervous but I know I can do it. However, on their Facebook page (yes I'm online stalking them!) they say that 2 local running clubs will be using the Parkrun as a Mob Match...what the heck is that??? Guess I'll find out tomorrow!!

Wish me luck & I'll let you know how I get on :)

PS - Must be getting serious as whilst I'm treating myself to take out pizza for dinner have decided not to have the huge glass of wine that I really need after a crap day in the office. Don't want to hamper my performance lol

  • Well done AliB1, I'll be watching for your feedback cos its my aim to try my local one in another few weeks. Have you got your barcode all sorted?

    Good luck, hope the weather is good for you too.

  • yup barcode has been sorted for quite a few weeks!

  • Personally I'd have skipped the pizza and gone straight for the wine, dough sits heavy on my stomach ;) Make sure you report back tomorrow with the news of the mobbing and how you came in first and broke the world record :)

    Serious now, good luck and make sure you have fun :) And like oldgirl said, make sure you've got your barcode!

  • i'll make up for it tomorrow with lots of wine :)

  • I am afraid there is officially no hope for you now!


  • Good luck Ali!!! I'm sure you'll do just great!! :)

  • I will be thinking of you as I start giving music lessons at 9.00 tomorrow; good luck :)

  • That's brilliant! I hope it goes really well. I've put off doing a Race for Life until July with the plan to do some park runs before then. I can't go tomorrow as I'm at work but I might try to pluck up the courage to go next weekend! Let us know how you get on! lucyx

  • Good luck AliB1 ! I'm doing my bit by having a large glass of wine for you :-) It's a tough job - but you're worth it ;-)

    I look forward to reading how you get on.

  • very jealous of the wine you are having. will have to make up for it tomorrow! just wish the nerves would disappear

  • Good luck AliB1,

    You can do it!!


  • I'll be thinking of you at 9 this morning and looking forward to hearing about how you get on! Go You! :-)

  • Still SOOOOOOOOOOOOO nervous but am up and dressed in running gear so there is no turning back

  • Ooh I hope it is going well!!

    Just back from my run and went whole way round thinking it could have been at Parkrun if I was only brave enough!

  • Hope all went well aliB and you didn't get too enmeshed in the turf war... Seriously tho, A great opportunity for a good fun run... Wish we had park runs in oz!

  • There are a few in Oz but being such a big country it may be hard to find a local one!

  • Thanks I'll look into it... Might investigate/cyber stalk some running clubs... Lol

  • i cyberstalked both my local running club and the parkrun before going along. Hope you find something local to you
