I took this photo just as I was about to join over 127 others for the Lake Ginninderra Park Run which happens every Saturday morning at 8am. All runners were being briefed on the event, the course and the organisation.
Park Runs are free events for runners all over the world and now that I am registered I can just turn up and run at any Park Run. They aren’t really competitive as you run against yourself and your recorded times. I think I ran very well and am pleased to say that I came first in my age group – according to the email I received just after the event. My first official PB, how exciting!! As I live over 250kms away, I won’t be able to participate too often but rest assured whenever I am here, I will join in.
Maybe I am on the threshold of a new and exciting time of my life – considering that 6 months ago I couldn’t run for more than two and a half minutes. I have also registered to do the 5km Mothers Day Classic in May in Canberra, so I had better keep up the training. Thresholds are the start of new beginnings.
