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 )
