This is it! I've done it!!
I wanted to make this run special. I have always been jealous of the runners at The Southbank in London. It's one of my favourite places in the world and I've always thought if I could run I would love to run around there. Well guess what? I did just that!
We went out as a family and then split up, I went for my run the husband and kid leisurely walked to the National Gallery, where we wanted to go. I run along Southbank dodged the tourists by The London Eye and in front of Big Ben then around St James Park up Pall Mall. It was brilliant!
I also thought I really wanted to run the 5k rather than 'just' 30 mins, so when Laura said "well done you have just run 30minutes" I just carried on until the FitBit app announced 5k. It took 40 mins, which is fine by me. I might get faster I might not. My new aim is to run longer distances rather than faster, in preparation for the 10k in July.
Can I get a graduation badge, please?
