Parkruns are changing the lives of many people worldwide. Each week Run24 features a parkrunner whose life has changed because of this 5km weekly run. This week Su Page, a UK parkrunner, shares her story.
“Inspirationally motivating is what parkrun is to me. Without the amazing support of my Watergrove parkrun, Rochdale family I wouldn't be achieving what I am today.
I did my first parkrun seven months ago in a time of 54.40, and it was challenging to say the least. But with the support and encouragement from Barbara, her team and my fellow parkrunners, 20 runs later, I am 10 minutes faster at 44.29. I have run 12 PBs, five of them in the past five weeks. It's the talking point before the run starts: 'Su, are you going for ANOTHER PB this week?'
Since starting parkrun I have run two 10kays and am training for my first half marathon in 10 weeks. Thank you parkrun for being my new best friend."
