Graduation Run - DONE!

Such a happy smiley person today :D

I completed run 3 of week 9. It felt amazing and I'm sure going to keep me happy all day - even though I've got to pop to the supermarket which will be chaos with people buying as if armageddon is coming not Christmas!

Thanks to (not) SlowRob for inspiring me to have a special plan for my Graduation run. I should have graduated on thursday morning but as in week I run at 5am in darkness on the the same route cause I know its well lit & safe I swapped my exercise week around and ran today. I went on a lovely route along the river, through cathedral grounds and back.

Nothing stopped me grinning - even when I got overtaken by faster runner & when some idiot in a white van jeered out his window :)

Hope everyone has a fab Saturday x
