I dressed for the occasion, wearing my new Hoka 'now it's time to fly' trainers, and Graduate couch to 5k t-shirt!
Thought back over the last couple of months and am so pleased with the changes I've made.
I can run 5k (best time so far 38:10).
I've joined a local running club, which is really supportive and encouraging.
Met some lovely people in real life and virtually on this forum.
Completed a couple of parkruns, and will be doing my third on Saturday.
Entered some virtual races in October and December.
Making healthy eating choices, so slowly losing weight.
Been reading Penguin Chronicles (by John Bingham) and below is a bit he wrote that really resonated with me:
'I am a runner because I run. Not because I run fast. Not because I run far.
I am a runner because I say I am. And no one can tell me I'm not.'
Amazing what can change in a couple of months - I really am a runner!
