Park Run

I have known about the Park Runs for some time now,having a special interest in the Kings Lynn park run and the Cambridge park run.

Parkrun-logoThe problem is they involve doing 2 things I dont really enjoy, early morning running and a 3 lap route, but I knew when the time was right I would eventually do one.

So I set my alarm for 7.30am on Saturday and have to confess I did wonder what I was letting myself in for but I need not have worried as it was fabulous, fun and friendly,amazingly I knew quite a few of the runners too 🙂

All the time I was running I kept thinking how much harder it was running at 9am, then when I finished and got my time I realised it might have been harder as it was my best 5k time at 29.11, a time that I think will be hard for me to better!

I was very impressed with the organisation of the Kings Lynn parkrun and how quickly the results went up on the web site, its all run by volunteers and is totally free too.

Its going to be a while before I have the chance to do another parkrun but I will be back !!

    Well done on your amazing PB! And yes, they are great events and a lot of fun. I am going to try to go when I can. I’ve done 12 so far (but that’s over nearly 3 years!!)
