The first Saturday of Janathon 2013 I ran my first Killerton Parkrun, if I had done all of them over the past year I would be in line for receiving a 50 T-shirt, obviously I did some slacking over the year and have only notched up 34, with a total of 40 overall. That first day I cam 88th out of 100, today I came 87th out of 140 (a whole place up the field!), but even though I am nowhere near a PB, I am consistently 5 minutes faster than I was that first day, for now I shall try to be happy with that!
Talking of happy I read on emilysrunningadventures about the happy, happier, happiest goals you should set when thinking about race times, I so wish I had done this for all my VLM’s, but I shall adopt this for all future races including Parkruns (I know technically they are a run not a race but I race against me so for me a race-following?).
Killerton Parkrun goals spring term
- Happy-Complete the course without falling over
- Happier-Get to the finish sub 30
- Happiest-Get to the finish sub 29
Killeton Parkrun goals summer term (be warned legs)

I was fresh out of Daz for these
so have opted for the recycle method (in the bin) and bought these
Now if someone could make a trainer dryer to save me doing this
then my life would be complete!
*Good For Shaz a secret time not to be disclosed until I reach it, but it is one I will be pleased with!
