Christmas Eve graduation!

Hi everybody,

i thought I would let everybody on this wonderful community know that I graduated today. I did 4.38km in 30 mins and couldn't be happier.

I've lurked here for months reading posts and taking inspiration from you peeps offering unlimited advice and motivational tips. I couldn't have done it without you guys. Thank you.

I'm so looking forward to consolodating and progressing further with my running, albeit in steady and controlled increments.

I'll be having a couple of days off over Christmas then will have a post Christmas run on Monday...and I'll certainly be hanging around in here and posting a bit more.

Happy Christmas everyone!

Congratulations. I am so pleased to read your great news.

I'm due to graduate tomorrow. Feeling very excited. It's like the night before Christmas...

Have a great Xmas. I think you deserve a celebratory drink or two ☺

Your timing is much better than mine. I finished last Sunday but what a brilliant time to finish the programme. You'll be able to have that extra glass or two with that smug feeling that you've already run them off. Ella may get a little treat as well I'm sure.

Ahh a fellow lurker. Congratulations it's a brilliant feeling isn't it. I'm sure i did an involuntary Andy Murray style fist pump but hopefully no one saw that! Have to agree with you about the inspiration you get from everyone on here, they're brilliant.

You've given yourself a real boost for a good Christmas and I look forward to your posts as you keep up your running in the new year.

Have a good one. Enjoy.
