I crossed the finishing tape😊

This afternoon I did my graduation run and now I'm a bit stiff but doesn't matter because I am floating on a cloud⛅ I cheated Laura and didn't start podcast till I had finished my warm up walk. That way I was always 5 minutes ahead of Laura and knew I could stop when she said there were 5 mins left. That kept the gremlins at bay and in the end I kept going and ran 35 minutes! 😊😊
