Started c25k year ago so I could run a 1 mile race with my grandson Brody the following May. Never EVER thought I would get hooked or that it would change my life in so many ways. In the last year I have run over 500 mls, joined a running club, ran that 1 ml race as well as a 5k, 5 ml and 10 k races ,30 parkruns and 7 junior parkruns . Apart from the unbelievable joy I get from running I have made some fantastic friends here and on FB who have helped me through the low points and celebrated the high points of my running journey Thank you all for your friendship and support. Today I feel like a new woman, have lost over 2 stone , love wearing lycra! and bright coloured running tops and shoes and have so much more mental and physical energy. Brody is now over 1/2 way through his 3yr treatment for leukaemia and drs happy with his progress so far. He is my inspiration and is always telling me I need to practise more if I want to go faster! Sorry for the ramble but I feel like I want to burst I am so emotional. Words can't really express how I am feeling but I can honestly say without c25k and all of you I don't know if I would ever have got out of the dark place I was in last year. Thank you.
