First of all I'd like to say thank you to everyone who posts on here, let me explain.... Six years ago, which was the last time I went to London I had a huge panic attack (prone to anxiety and depression) which left me virtually housebound for two years. C25k has been part of a long slow recovery process for me, gradually expanding my boundaries from the front door, into town, to an adjacent town. Gradually building confidence through my running. Parkrun has been a big help with this as a) it's local and b) I have to talk to people. Anyway, having done a couple of local 10ks and knowing that some C25kers were doing the London Winter Run I rather rashly entered and although I worried about it for weeks beforehand , today I am proud to be able to say that I drove to the station, got the train to London, ran the 10k despite a dodgy knee and feel a huge sense of achievement, not so much for the running but for the adventure. Sadly didn't manage to get to the C25k meet up but knowing they were all out there somewhere was a big help. (I did manage to spot one beyonder for a quick hello) Happy running everyone. Getting to the BM10k is now definitely looking doable.
