Both of them have started where we started in running years ago with the Couch to 5k program and have the added advantage of having Parkrun to help them along.
I love both of these things. Couch to 5k gives you easy steps to transition from walking to run/walk to all running at a pace that suits you. Running with other people is another effective way to increase your running and Parkrun is a free timed event to challenge yourself and watch progress.
So Tania and Carol gave up a Saturday morning sleep in to attend Parkrun and we were there to encourage them, run/walk with them, taper for the half and introduce them to the friendly folk at Parkrun.

This lovely short, relaxed run was a precursor for the next challenge...the Geelong Half Marathon
