A quick update on how things are going in the land of lost dogs and purple faces.
Tomorrow I do W6R2 - can't quite believe it as only a few weeks ago I could barely run for 60 seconds. At the weekend my daughter and I signed up to do Race for Life ( although I have told her that mine will be a Plod for Life) which is a target for me and testament to this extraordinary programme and community.
I no longer sneer at runners and pretend that I don't care that I don't do any exercise. What I don't care about is how I look when I run - if I'm purple and sweaty, that's my business and it's because I am getting fitter. I'm still a podge but at least I'm a fitter podge than I was in March. I like reading the posts from the Graduates and the posts from the Newbies - it's great how we all help each other. I am so grateful for the motivation and encouragement and to the programme for how it's changed me.
