Today I have held a London Marathon 2016 Medal. I have 2 friends who achieved this on Sunday. They are both just normal women with families like me and you.
Talking to the amazing lady who brought her medal into work she started just like us, walking, running. 3 years on and a London Marathon medal is in her hands. Her time was 4hrs 22.
Wow is all I can say she beat her personal challenge time and yes said it was tough but the experience was amazing and she loved every second.
Today I was told the person who as yet to do a parkrun or race for life will achieve this as long as they prepare
For the first time in my life the fat useless girl at sport really believes that anything is possible. Just need to be brave forget the school insults and continue doing what I'm doing.
I now run in day light don't cross the street or change direction when I see somone approaching. Ignore the kids in the park ( to be fare it's only the odd individual who has somthing to say on very rare occasions) .
I love the new found me and wish I'd found this year's ago. Thank you C25K group yes I still need encouragement and my next big step is a park run but I have registered just need the support to take the next step and DO IT
