Yes, I did it!

Today, I did it! Week 9 run 3. I even mapped the route on the website: walkrunjog and it said I ran 4.88k - in 30 mins! I'm dead chuffed. Very nearly 5k. My previous run had been really hard, I did not expect to do so well tonight, but there you go - good runs and not good runs - who knows how it will be!

So, I'm a graduate mark 2 now - previously graduated last May. Its so great to feel part of this community of runners, to read about how everyone else is doing, and to feel part of people's ups and downs. Thanks for everyone contributing and making this an amazing community to be part of. So many of us run alone, but I never feel alone as I know that there's a whole load of other people out there, struggling to make it too. Happy Running :)
