At the time it seemed like an awful idea to be running in all that rain but it’s probably the reason I don’t mind winter running! We finished the course, did one Parkrun to prove we could run 5k and then I forgot all about it. When I moved to Southampton in 2014 and was walking distance from the common I started doing Parkrun regularly and picked it up from there. I started running more frequently but sticking to the shorter distances. It wasn’t until the 5-10k course with OS last year that I finally started running longer distances, and I’ve completed two 10k races so far.
