Great excuse (with apologies for being a bit emotional)

Great excuse (with apologies for being a bit emotional)

I worked from home today which means I get loads done but also means that by mid afternoon I'd hardly moved. So at 4pm I shut the laptop and layered up to face the cold. I ran 6.5k, loving (just about) every minute. The photo was taken halfway up the steepest hill and what a great excuse to pause for a moment.

I really was only half living before running. There was a real risk I was going to slide into a sofa-bound middle age gradually getting fatter and more depressed. Thank goodness I found c25k and you lot to inspire me, thank you xx

  • Just beautiful! i think c25k has helped a lot of us here. I've been feeling bit fed up and sure the fact that i have a cold and cough and haven't run all week doesn't help at all! :( :)

  • Gorgeous photo, and I can recognise the sense of relief from having saved myself from what would otherwise have been a somewhat more sad future.

  • Emotional's good! It's important stuff. When I started running my cousin, who's a seasoned marathon runner, said it's life changing - and he's right. I'm not sure I'll ever be a seasoned marathon runner (previous injuries) but my life has changed so much since May - even tho it looks fairy similar to outsiders. Enjoy the new you.

  • Gorgeous pic, isn't that what running is all about? You'd never have seen that sunset as as a couch potato.

  • What a stunning photo! And I absolutely get what you're saying. Running really is a life changer and we are so lucky we found it. Thank you for your beautiful post.
