It only took two years!

It only took two years!

Finally ran 5k in 30 mins something (at Parkrun)! And it just happens that I graduated C25k two years ago today (thanks to fb memories for reminding me 😀).

A bit of along ole process, But got there. Regular three times a week running - sometimes four now I've discovered Parkrun - shows what you can do.

So any newbies, please don't think this running business is a race, it isn't. Just keep on running, enjoying it, reaping the benefits - it's amazing ☺🏃☺🏃
