This mornings naked run

Now i bet that grabbed you attention :)

To reassure you I didn't scare my local park run community by running with no clothes just no gadgets. Been some talk over the park run Facebook pages this last week encouraging people to run with no gadgets....music, watches, garmins etc. the idea was to post what time you think you would do and then run without them I.e. naked. I estimated 35.45 with the hope of a PB at Orpington. Not sure of my time yet (but know it was slower than 36 mins) as waiting for the text but whatever time I get it will be a non stop PB..no walking again for me. Whoooppp that alone makes me happy.

Have to say enjoyed just getting out there and doing it and not worrying about checking times etc. my love for running is returning!!!!

That sounds a lovely way to do it. I'm really looking forward to Telford getting a park run - should be in about February next year.

Time in and was 37.10 so a fair bit slower than what I know I can do (36ish) but I think the no walking slowed me down a little. Still really pleased with though :)
