The Back to Front parkrunner

I believe the majority of people who start going to parkrun start off slowly and then go chasing PBs and get faster. Well I am the opposite. Let me take you back to the start of my parkrunning journey.   I first started running back in 2009 when I entered the 2010 London Marathon to…
