Today pain turned to JOY!

W4r3. And it happened:) I knew I felt confident today.. felt prepared to just complete the run.. but wasn't prepared to feel strong and pain free during the run (well maybe not the last two minutes) I actually smiled and felt so great..felt I was actually running taking in that feeling was amazing and for the first time today I know I want to run.. want to complete this challenge.. I know there is a lot of hard work ahead..but week five on its way and I'm ready!!! To everyone just starting out.. have faith.. give it your all... if this 49 year old x couch potato can do it.. you can too x. Thanks everyone for your encoragement.. it's sooo helpful x
