Thank You

Well 9 weeks ago i posted on here about being to old to start running ( the ripe old age of 48) and i was amazed about the number of replies from the good people on here telling me that this no age at all and to give it a go. Well last night i graduated completing my 5k in 27min.37's the past weeks have been hard, fun challenging, painful, inspiring but most of all i would not have got through it without reading the posts on here ! everyday it was great to read how other people where getting on and the support that they received was really inspiring. So a big thank you to all my fellow runners , time to start training now for the Lincoln 10k in March.
