Hi there

Congratulations on your graduation. Please leave your username here for me or OlsBean so we can organise your well deserved graduation badge. we will try not to leave you waiting too long as we know how great they feel when they arrive.

I would like to clarify the position of earning your graduation badge. To get your badge you will of completed the full training podcasts and be able to run for 30 min. It does NOT matter if you can not run 5km, you are a graduate after running 30 min for three times.

So it is fair to everybody please do not ask for your badge until you have completed week 9 run 3.

Realfoodieclub and OlsBean

Every few days I will clear the posts to make way for the new graduates

Hi, I would like to claim my graduation badge from you, I have now completed all the podcasts and run 3 times for 30 mins constantly.

Is there also a c25k poster you could email over to me? So I can show my doctor and pinup on the board in the waiting room.

Thanks, davelinks
