What a beautiful day to graduate!

Well after just 9 weeks I have completed c25k this morning! I started out on this programme in the hope of giving my self some "me time"( I am a busy mum of 3) and get a bit fitter in the process! I started out somewhat tentatively not really believing that I would get to the end and I think I am in a bit of a state of shock that I have actually achieved my goal!! Thank you to everyone for the encouragement and support along the way you have all been fantastic!! For anyone just starting out on the programme, stick at it, it does work. If I can do this, trust me anyone can!!!! I'm now off to celebrate in the sunshine!! Happy Running everyone!!!! :)
