I just wrote a very long post and lost it so this one is the shortened version. On 1st April this year I started C25K so I could run and fundraise in this race for a close friend I lost. Well today was very emotional as I did it!! If anyone told me last April I would have no problem running 5k today I would have laughed. Great day, atmosphere and camaraderie was brilliant and even though it took ages to get everyone over the start line I still finished in 35.23 mins which I am thrilled with. Now like all recent graduates do I try and trim that time down or kick on for the 10k training?? One thing I know is I am on a roll and not stopping now. As well as the R4L challenge I wanted to be a fit and fun mom for my young twins and this was very rewarding having them with me and see me run. I hope this post encourages everyone who has recently started to get out there and keep running and having a goal is a great way to get through the tough days. Good luck!
