Sharing my special day - W9R3 done.....Yippee

Its seems like loads of people have graduated today - I think a slap on the back is well deserved for all of us! I honestly can't believe I've got there - it has taken me an extra week but I really feel fantastic about my achievement. I went out this morning in the wind and rain in the air but I tried my hardest. I managed 4.57KM which I am really proud off - I'm sure if I carry on with the 30 minutes I'll get to 5KM. I would recommend this programme to anyone. I hadn't run since school, over 20 years. I'm not sure that I have lost any weight or inches but my head space is so much clearer and the endorphin rush makes me smile every time. Its hard to explain how I feel but I'm sure that you all know what I hubby came home from work with a rosette 'Couch to almost 5K'....I'm wearing it with pride!
