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 :) .

CONGRATULATIONS! Beautiful graduate badge there, Eve. This programme is pure magic - you start out gasping for breath, and a few months later you find yourself gasping for a run. Onwards and trainer-wards....

Sooo many congratulations - that was me too a couple of weeks ago and yesterday I went out and ran 6km - keep up the momentum, settle in to your new status as graduate and set yourself a new goal over the next few weeks. You've done amazingly well. Well done.x
