My parkrun journey started in January 2017 after I had moved to Australia and was looking for a sport around Mount Barker.
I came across this free running event and thought – why not give that a go?! I barely survived my first parkrun, but straight away I wanted to see if I can do it again and maybe even improve the next week. And so it started…
Since then I had the chance to travel to all the other South Australian parkruns and with the help of some parkrun friends I became a stateswoman this December. It was a great way to explore different areas and see beautiful places.
I also ran a parkrun in Germany when I went home to visit the family. It’s encouraged me to run a few other events and increase the distance to run my first half marathon.
I’d like to thank the parkrun community and especially the volunteers to make all this possible and to create a wonderful Saturday morning activity!
What a great way to start the day!
