Week 9 run 3

i have done it.

Actually graduated, struggled today with a pulled hamstring bothering me so the only 4.7 k in 30, and avoided hills for gentle inclines......ah back to the couch!!!!!! Only joking.

Nothing can describe how I feel when I finished, I am not over the hill yet, 60 birthday looming and husband doing Route 66.

we feel like teenagers again.

Please can I have my graduation badge by my name ?

Congratulations it's a great feeling isn't it. I think you need to email the admin folks and request your badge. Wear it with pride. :)

Well done!

I was nearly right you need to reply to the question on the right hand side of the page 'Need your badge'. Things have changed since I got mine.
