Victory moment

So I've been running now for 8 weeks I gave up smoking and started running ;) and on my first week I walked up huge hill in New Zealand called one tree hill and I thought one day I'm going to run this whole way. anyway last week I did it I could not breathe when I got to the top but a lady came up to me and said well done you ! (As I'm not the smallest woman 96kgs) and I just burst into tears from 8 weeks ago not being able to walk up one flight of stairs with out a massive breathing attack To what I am achieving every day honestly I am so proud of myself for the first time ever !
