Graduated with running my first 5k

Artefactfinder profile image

So I started this program exactly 9 weeks ago...today for my last podcast I ran my first 5 k in 36 minutes and 52 seconds (that's me in the middle in the pink) at the Dunedin Highland Games in Dunedin, Florida. Honestly before I started this I couldn't have run 1/2 a k. I am so impressed by the NHS for providing these podcasts, for the people on this forum for all their encouragement, stories and tips and by myself for actually doing it! for all those who think they are never going to do it I am living proof that you can! Great day :-)

Hi Artefactfinder, congratulation. I hope to reach this level in another two to three months. You will be my inspiration. I just have to do it!

Fantastic - well done. As you say, amazing programme. I couldn't run 20 feet a few weeks ago.

Well done! That's an inspiration.
