Graduated! Merry Christmas to you all

Barbarajs

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)

Congratulations! Fab way to graduate. Amazing that Lily can just do it without the 9 weeks lead in time!

Lots of lovely running adventures ahead for you both now.

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 :)

Fantastic. Well done Barbara (and Lily). Happy Christmas to you.

Thank you IP. Lily will definitely be coming again. Now my wish is for Lottie to be well enough to come too. She has had a rough few months and I felt terrible not taking her xx
