W6R3 -I was petrified - now I'm proud!

Hi all you lovely people - I DID IT!!!! It was easily the hardest run to date - hardest by a country mile. BUT I DID IT! I'm so so pleased. Mind you, I was like a sloth on mogadon by the end I was so slow and when Laura said something along the lines of 'if you're feeling good ramp it up and end it on a high' I almost laughed out loud! All I could do was keep putting one foot in front of the other. The last two minutes were awful but I was determined to finish. Phew!

When Laura said the magic words - 'you're officially a runner now - congratulations' I almost cried. Right there in the middle of the gym.

Thank you all so much for your support when I was worrying - it really made a difference considering how nervous I was feeling. I bought myself some fresh strawberries as a reward and they were lovely. Hurrah!
