On 20 December 2014 I registered with ParkRun and got my barcode. Since then I’ve ‘been going to’ take part but somehow never actually managed.
That all changed on the 28 May 2016 when I dragged myself down to the Inaugural Stevenage ParkRun. Thought it had a nice ring to it me doing my first at an event first.
The route is on paths that have formed part of my regular stomping ground so knew the horrid bit (with the exception of the final uphill to the finish, that is not pleasant at all!!). I have managed to complete another two, both of those accompanied by my lovely hubby who took part in the event with me, a lovely bond there and it has kick started his running. Although he still hates it.
So far I am pleased with my times:
28 May – 23.54, 105/426, 10th female, 4th in VW50-54
6 June – 23.39, 64/272, 5th female, 1st in WV50-54
11 June – 23.18, 52/266, 6th female, 2nd in WV50-54
