Couch to 5K (2011) to Rio´s Marathon (2016)

I began to run in 2011 with the mp3 audios from Couch to 5k. In 2012, I won my first medal running 5K.

Last Sunday, May 29th, I finished my 1st Marathon in 6h10'55".

Thank you NHS! Thank you, Laura (real or virtual)!!!

Well, it's a promotional video... I bet that when she runs "in real life" she is sweaty and red-faced as any other human being. 😉

Please tell us more about your marathon - I can't really imagine being on my feet for 6 hours in a marathon ( even though there have been times when I have "walked around" for 6 hours or more. ) I can only think that it is because even when we have no finishing time pressure - we really really do deep down inside have a finishing time!! ???

Bravo! What an achievement and thank you so much for posting... it's not just about the tremendous feat that is a marathon run (and the training involved), but keeping the running going for years rather than weeks or months.
