So…. since NO-ONE and I mean not one person out of the 17 I messaged was keen to join me last Saturday morning… this post has to be purely about me and my first ‘solo’ Parkrun experience. (glamorous finish line photo and all!!)
And it was absolutely awesome! Well that was by the time I finally got there…. My Parkrun barcode did not pop out the printer till 7.37am. It was my last ditch attempt after having internet problems all week and being unable to access the link from laptop/phone/printer. (You name it and we had an issue with it last week.)
So I frantically changed out of my uggies and trackies and got to Salt just in time for the 8am start. Lots of gorgeous people and the most sublime environment to run 5kms. And sure I was passed by a mum pushing a pram with her 2 year old toddler and 3 week old son who she’d breastfeed before sliding him into the pram before the start line (And yes she was the first female across the line a good 3.36 minutes before my finishing time of 25.06) But hey what the hell!
Lots of fun for anyone who wants to join me next time….
