There once was a girl called Jo
Running was definitely her foe
But this programme she found
With Laura’s soothing sound
With a goal to achieve don’t you know
So on with week one she went
Wondering what on earth Laura meant
When she said “start to run”
This didn’t seem like fun
The walking was definitely heaven sent
Onwards and upwards she progressed
Blogging as she went along no less
The rewards were great
And positive her state
Of mind, as she left behind her stress
Well the thanks go to those who supported
Who cheered and consoled and created
A network of care
And a place you can bare
Your worries and fears when they started
Thank you, thank you, thank you to all those who gave their time, effort and care to help support me. At times I found this really hard and felt really alone and knew if I came on here I would find someone to give me a virtual hug, tell me that I wasn’t alone and that I could do this.
And do you know what, I can do this. I could do it, did do it and can do it.
I know I’ve a long way to go before I look like one of the countless runners who run past me in the mornings making it look way too easy but I want to carry on with this.
9 weeks ago I struggled on the 60 second week 1 runs and did wonder how on earth I was going to do this but so many of you had said the same things and had your lovely green badge that I thought to myself ‘you’ve got legs and you’ve got your health’ when many people don’t so get out there and just do it
Your kind words meant such a lot and you were always there to give me a kind word. I feel like I know so many of you even though I’m sat behind a computer screen. It’s been a pleasure to share some of your journeys with you and hope that long may this continue. I will continue to come on here and stay in touch.
Im starting to turn into Gwyneth Paltrow blubbering away with my Oscar
This has been such a journey and I hope it’s just the start. My Race for Life is on 7th July and I’m really hoping to run the whole 5k. Wish me luck.
Thank you again
