Video of a C25K grad running her first 10K (my better half!)

So, I don't usually (ever?) post here, but thought I'd share a video of my wife (a grad herself) running her first 10K race! I hope it especially inspires all the new runners! Her journey also started with the programme after having our kiddo!

(Special appearance by my daughter <3 )

Thanks! Yeah, our daughter loves watching her run. What you missed was her crying every time my wife had to run on without her!

As someone else said what a great lesson for life she and you are teaching her by what you do... Its amazing how that WILL sink in and become a part of her as it now so obviously is of you both too . Again well done to you both

Thanks, Anaverageman! Really kind words and nicely stated. I do hope it's instilling all the right things in her (trying hard, seeing things through, healthy activities, etc.). Be sure to let us all know when you graduate!!

Great video and thanks for the share. Well done to your other half. You have a budding little runner there as well by the looks of it. It's a great program and being able to come on here and share these moments with a forum like this makes all the difference to us on here.

What a lovely video - and I am another one who felt a little teary watching it! Your daughter must be so proud of her Mummy and as you say, a fantastic thing for a child to see. Thank you for sharing. well done to your wife too on completing her first 10k - I am still hoping to get back to 5k following an injury set back. Am starting the whole C25K again tomorrow - it is a great programme.
