1st in Age Category at Parkrun 5km

On Saturday I took part in a new (2nd event) parkrun 5km at Gorleston (Norfolk) sea front. It was a fairly tough course as it was two laps with some climbs up the cliff top and also strangely warm at that time of the morning.

Without knowing the exact route I went of the start fast and thought I would see how long I could hold the pace for. I kept the pace fast with slight recovery sections at the top of inclines.

I completed the run in 24:01 which is 9 seconds quicker than any other parkrun 5km I have done.

Later in the day I found out that I was 4th overall and 1st in my age category.
