Name: Carmel Cassidy Club: None Age: 52 Home Parkrun: St.Annes Occupation: Nurse Number of runs: 15 Favourite Volunteer Role: I have only tried marshalling so far. I couldn't believe how quickly the time went. What do you do at parkrun: I usually arrive with my son Conor (who encouraged me to do my first parkrun).a quick warm-up and a chat with anyone I know before the off. How has parkrun changed your running: Before my first parkrun I had never run 5K ! It has motivated me and given me more confidence. What do you like about parkrun; I love the buzz, the encouragement and the sense of belonging to the group. I think I have chatted to someone new each week I've been there. Most memorable or funniest parkrun: It has to be my Bere Island run. I know the course well as we go to Bere Island every year and walk that course regularly. It was only when I ran it that I realised how hilly it was! My plan was to keep the local legend (VF 70-74) in my sights. Epic fail... She was almost 2 mins faster than me. LOL.
