Parkrun is a free weekly event held over various places every Saturday throughout Australia and the world.
While there is a parkrun located in Ararat, I’ve still yet to visit it.
I do have the option of visiting various parkruns in Melbourne when I go to visit my family.
Normally I go visit Point Cook, but on this particular visit, I decided to go visit Wyndham Vale.
Week 30 – Wyndham Vale Parkrun
Do not let that glorious sunshine deceive you, it was frightfully cold (there was a frost that morning).
I should have worn a long sleeve top or leggings, or even gloves. I was cold the entire run.
Having done a 18km trail run through the You Yangs the day prior I wasn’t sure how my legs would hold up, for my 2nd run at Wyndam Vale.
Looking back at my Parkrun history I could not believe that this was only the 2nd time I had visited. And it had been over a year, since runs. I did volunteer as the photographer for their Christmas run in 2016, as I was injured at the time, and thought I would give my volunteer duties instead.
While it was cold, I was happy with my pace. I finished the 5km in 23:01, 5th person over the line and first female.
My fastest 5km this year.
