To quote the great Nelson Mandela that's exactly how I feel about finishing this program!!! I really cannot believe that I have stuck with this and overcome my lifelong exercise/ getting sweaty/Lycra/ being seen in public doing the above phobia to get to graduation. I am so so grateful to all the wonderfully generous , supportive folk on this forum who have been with me through every step - you are the gremlinbusters for sure! Thank you all so much .I've learnt a whole new language , acquired much more Lycra and feel like I can do so much more than I thought I could.
I was pretty nervous about this final run - wavering about trying a new route in the forest park etc but in the end stuck to the old familiar ( hilly) one and felt pretty good throughout. Only managed 4.2 km in the 30min but just elated to have finished !
Please may I have my badge?
