My 1st Park Run

Today I ran my first park run. The 5km run took place in my home town of Merthyr Tydfil, with dozens of other runners of all ages and abilities. Although I have ran before and I knew that I could do the distance, I felt a little nervous.

We started at 9am on the Taff trail behind the Leisure Centre and ran on towards Merthyr college and back twice. The course was great and challenging, with plenty of hills to keep me occupied.

I finished the run in record time at 25:27 and will be intending to run every week. I may even try other park runs. Which park run do you run? Do you enjoy it?

I really loved the park run this Morning, all the volunteers were brilliant and thank you for taking the time this Morning to Marshall the event. It felt like a great community of people. I spoke a gentlemen this Morning that had completed all different park runs, one as far as Bristol. He got inspired by his son to keep him fit and it turned out that he now loves running.

The volunteers and organisers gave out water and even had some Christmas chocolates for us. Thank you. I will see you next week.
