Ok, so this past Saturday I did my fifth parkrun.

It was at Century City in Cape Town.

25m:27s !!!

Been mostly hanging around the 29/30min mark on the more hilly runs.

But this run is dead flat, so I went for it!!!

Rather proud of myself

Good job! I still can't get under 28:00 mins at the Botanical Gardens here in Pta - that damn hill in the middle on the 2nd lap is a bit tough.....  :patch:  My best time is 28:03.

Did my 1st parkrun with my 13 year old daughter the past Saturday. She fell at 3km and was most upset that her new running tights was ruined. Durbanville is quite steep  ;D I'm surprised how few people actually run, looks like most people just walk for the Vitality points.

Ja, the first hill is OK coz you are still fresh. But that second one, and the long one to the finish is fkn hell!!! LOL!!!

I dont mind the walkers, you must just take off in front of them.

Still better than the people lying and sleeping off hangovers.

In George we start in two different groups = runners on the right and walkers and people with dogs on the left. The routes are separate for the first couple hundred metres with plenty of room and no severe bottlenecks so there is less congestion. This works well.

I clocked 100 runs 2 months ago, no t-shirt yet, no t-shirt ever now!

Think MRP Sport is missing the boat on this one, its a huge marketing thing - hopefully another brand will take over.
