Running club.... First time, eek!

I'm going along this morning! I'm posting on here so that I can't wimp out! I've been plucking up courage for ages!

My daughter encouraged me to do the Parkrun and came along with me and I loved it! I'm assuming it's a similar atmosphere without the competition. It's the social aspect that worries me, I'm not worried about how slow I am.

I'm sure that once I've been I will love it, I'll post later to let you know how I get on!

It was a lovely run and I went pretty fast for me too! Thankyou

How did you get on? Reckon such a run will take me 50 minutes - did anyone in your run do it this slow?

It took me about thirty minutes but I got lost at one point and had to ask a cyclist the way! It wasn't timed so I don't know how anyone else got on.

How did you get on? I'd be really nervous with the social aspect too...

The social aspect of it felt really awkward for me, TJ, the trainer was really nice and the setting off was ok, I just felt like a sore thumb on the return. I will go again next week though.
