W9R3......completed finally!

Well, after a rather long journey of 18 weeks I have just finished my graduation run (along with the bats and the rabbits and a cyclist who nearly ran me over!). I think my graduation treat needs to be a head or chest torch :-) Time to register for my first parkrun and concentrate on actually getting to 5K now. Thanks to everyone here for your encouragement and invaluable help along the way.

Congratulations Sarah.. well done.🎉🎉🎊

Yes, get a torch, that sounds like a dangerous run tonight. Maybe your shiny new graduate badge will make you more visable and scare away the bats..😊

Well done! A running light sounds a great graduation prize, and shows your commitment to keeping on running. Laugh in the faces of bats, lol;)

Congratulations!!! I know the feeling! We just did our graduation run yesterday (in the dark). Both mid-50's and it took us 5 months, but we did it and that's all that counts.

🍾🍰🏃🏼
