A New Year, A New PB – Park Run 20m 11s

02 Jan 16  / Pete

Parkrun is awesome. I’ve said it before and I will again. Bringing so many together and getting more people into running. I also love it because 4 times in the last 6 weeks, I have got a new PB there!

It was only at about 2.30am this morning I remembered it was a Saturday and that there was a Parkrun on! You know…long Christmas holidays, a few late nights and enough food and drink to make you feel like a pig in a blanket! ha.

Parkrun time!

So after roughly 4 and a half hours sleep, I dragged my sorry ass out of bed to tackle my first Parkrun of the year. And this was my first Parkrun for a while where I wasn’t dressed as an Elf. My regular clothing and face doesn’t get as many laughs. Still gets a few though!

Ready…steady…go! 2016 is under way and I have hit my first PB of the year 2 days in. 20 minutes and 11 seconds is my new 5k PB. That 20 minute mark is getting smashed soon. I’ll make sure of it!

So who else enjoyed a Parkrun this morning? I hope you all had a cracker! I would love to hear where others are up to with their own personal targets. Wherever you are up to, this is just the beginning of 2016, and this year, you can do anything you put your mind too. Come on!
