wow! I'm so happy! i was putting this run off for days and then Sunday come and i decided to get off my bottom and get on and do it! What got me through the run was all your encouraging words. I kept telling myself that i could do it and i kept repeating in my head mind over matter, mind over matter. When i got to ten minutes i was like nooo but it got to 15 minutes and i was like yeah i could carry on! And then time was up and i did it. I'm so pleased with myself, now i cannot wait to carry on with the other run. Thank you all for being so nice and encouraging! I feel I could become addicted to running!
