My first ParkRun AND Graduation

Thank you for all the encouragement on my post earlier.

I've done my first ParkRun and my Week 9 Run 3 although I wasn't actually listening to the podcast today. Hope that still counts.

I am extremely slow and just do a slow jog. I told my friend I was aiming for 55 minutes and I did it in 55 minutes & 44 seconds. Pretty happy with that.

It has taken me since 1 September to graduate due to various illness but I'm pleased. Now I need to work on my speed more.
