  • Still no graduate badge I notice ! Wish it would hurry up lol

  • Well done you!!!! Great time isn't it nice to have the freedom to just run? Also this badge thing sucks I sent them another email this morning!

  • I've sent 3 ! Taking there time , do u keep getting that technical response reply , asking you to check other links to see if this solves your query ? I do !

  • Well done! Brilliant time too.

  • Thanks hezzabelle

  • Wow, that's an impressive time! Well done!

  • Thanks hennith , I'm well pleased

  • Congratulations, well done :)

  • Thanks olsbean

  • You can go off people you know...only joking! That's awesome. You're going at quite a lick if you're matching 'John, I'm only dancing'! I don't know if that made me laugh more than the bit where you said "I've just done my 5k run..." like it was a really throw away comment! A true runner now! :-)

  • Ha ha ur right ! I never could walk 5 k a few months back . Let alone run one .Thanks Jen , not be long before your graduating , hope your not waiting as long as me for badge .

  • It's a bit bizarre. I wonder if all the Admin are on holiday...?

  • Could be , or I'm doing something wrong , but twilight is the same , she hasn't got hers either. , I can't see any other way of requesting it though , I email them , it gets sent & I get same automated reply back

  • Amazing time Do you think your time is improving because you are more relaxed now you are a graduate?

  • Could be , never thought of that .

  • Also your own music helps a lot !

  • Well done -after all my moaning in previous weeks I'm due for my last run of week 9 in the morning -yikes a bit intimidated by it.

  • Good luck for tomorrow

  • Hi run ragged I'm doing last run tomorrow morning as well so be thinking of you and then hopefully we can ask for graduate badges -- but sounds like there is quite a queue for them Good luck

  • Good luck , look forward to seeing the post

  • Great time and lovely happy post! Your own music makes such a difference doesn't it? Happy running!

  • Wow great time! Congrats.
