I seriously took up running during 2014. My aim was to beat my
record (set in 1995) of 5km in 35 minutes. It took a while, but I got
there. Then, in March 2015, I started going to parkrun at Mitchelton.
When Chermside parkrun did the test run on the Ekka holiday in August
2015, I went along, and I've been to every one since.
Saturday I set up the kilometre markers and directional signs between
6:00 and 6:30am. I joined the event team and directed
my first parkrun at the end of February 2016. Then I became Co-Event
Director in July 2016, and Event Director in February 2017.
got my 5km time
down to 30 minutes in September 2015 and my current PB is 25:30, set in
early 2017. In relation to distance, I ran (trudged) 23.5km
in October 2016, taking just over 3 hours. My current
running goal is to get my 5km time down to 25 minutes.
