    ParkRun

    Does anybody go to/ thinking of joining park run?

    Its my first time tomorrow..im excited but think it will be hard work!

    I ran before christmas about 4 times a week for two or three months. My fitness was great. I did 5k before christmas in 29 mins. Ive had two weeks off and blowing the dust off my trainers and joining park run.

    Any tips or anything to do with park run? Tell me your experiences..have you beat you PB?

    I went to my first parkrun today. 37m12s - not bad for a first run in about 6 months.
    I was really impressed at how nice everyone was!

    I registered yesterday with the aim to run my first Parkrun in five weeks time as that is the earliest I will be able to go to one. At the moment I'm running for 25 mins (just) and going 3.48km so I need to get up to the full 5k in the five weeks! My only aim is to not be the last one to finish.

    What happens at the finish line? I've read about the 'tunnels' (or funnels?!) and getting a token but I'm not sure how this gives you a time. I don't want to be the one who gets it wrong!!






    Mini Goals:
    Reach my Club 10 weight of 14st 12.5lbs 22/11/2013
    Get under 200lbs (14st 3.5lbs)
    17/01/2014
    Hit the half way mark (13st 11lbs)
    21/02/2014
    Fit comfortably into size 16 jeans
    29/03/2014
    Be at my pre-pregnancy weight (12st 13lbs)
    04/04/2014
    Fit comfortably into size 14 jeans
    BMI in the healthy range (11st 10lbs)

    You will reach your goal in no time.
    Bit more every day!

    At the end you cross the line and get a ticket. I followed the person in front of me and a volunteer will scan your barcode. Not sure what you mean about the tunnels?!

    Thank you... I'll make sure I'm not that far behind I can't follow someone else at the finish!

    I meant funnels... this is in the FAQ:

    "The finish area is different at each of our events - some have taped funnels, others are 'imaginary' funnels marked with cones. Please, please do not leave the funnel until you have been given a finish position token (it really messes up our results and takes an age to sort out)"
