Graduated! Merry Christmas to you all

Graduated! Merry Christmas to you all

Did it this morning at 9. Only saw a few people. Took Lily,my chocolate Labrador for the first time. She loved it and was such a good girl. The look of panic on her face when I started running was a picture. Think she thought I was leaving her. She just then ran at the side of me. My other lab still isn't fit after her cruciate repair :(

So chuffed. I've graduated. What a great Christmas present to myself. Have a fab day all.

Happy running to you all

Barbara xxx (and Lily)

  • Thanks B2r. I'm planning on doing a 5km during the week if I can and perhaps edging up to slightly longer at the weekends. I'd like to aim for a 10km eventually. We have a local one in our village which was started for the first time this year in the summer. Looking forward to running in the warmer weather fingers crossed :)
