A few people were interested in my choice of footwear, including the official photographer. So, I very happily got a "Foot Portrait" done.
I met up with Shaun, whom I have run with a few times and it was his first Parkrun too. We chatted for most of the 5km which made the distance disappear quickly and we even walked a couple times when we got tired. We both ran faster than we thought we would because I was keeping up with him and he was keeping up with me.
So now the bar has been set and I have a fast-ish time to beat next time. And a next time there will be ... Who wouldn't want to run with this background?
