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!!! 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.
