I joined a club around 3 months ago but at many sessions am the slowest runner which is getting me down.
I would say they were quick you are not slow.
I think people who run regularly appreciate this, I wouldnt worry about it, I dont and I am usually at the back too!
Definately don't quit! You shouldn't worry about being the slowest (or fastest really!). For example, my girlfriend has done a couple of park runs...isn't a regular runner by any means and has finished close to last place both times close to 40 minutes or just below...but she enjoys it! Don't put yourself down and keep persevering and your times may improve! On the flip side, you are talking about running these long distances - not everyone can do these so think of it that way too!
