OMG I did it! Graduated!!!

Hello everybody,

I am so unbeliveably happy. I did the W9 R3! OMG!!! I don't believe it is true. Just 9 weeks ago I struggled to run for a minute, I didn't give up only because I am ambitious. Now look at me -still slow, still beetroot red but running! :) . I also lost more than 6kg and my BMI when down from 33.2 to 31 during C25k. Now dreaming about my first 5k. Celebration time for me. And for the community thank you for your support :) .
