Week 9 run 2 done!

And in the driving rain and wind too...does that earn me extra brownie points??!!! 😜

We were seriously drenched, I had ears full of rain and water running off my nose! But we did it and throroughly enjoyed it too 😊

So the next one will be our graduation run on Thursday night. Whilst I'm really looking forward to it...I'm half dreading it too. I've loved/hated this whole journey! I've still got a way to go before I'm running 5k as I'm a slow coach so that'll be my next goal. Did anyone else half dread their last run too?

Yes dreaded it, but loved it when I was actually doing it. And I think you def deserve extra brownie points for dedication.

My next run is Week 9 run 2 and looking forward to it. Graduation will be the moment I scream in joy that I have completed it

Ive somehow managed to avoid getting wet throughout the whole program, so you do deserve brownie points. I've only just graduated and was glad to complete the program and put it behind me, but I loved my graduation run and you will too. No gremlin could have stopped me that day, and during that last ten minutes you'll be thinking of how far you've come. Enjoy that last run, be proud of what you've achieved, and be sure to keep the running habit when that shiny badge arrives. Congrats

Brownie points? Definitely! Someone described finishing the programme this morning, like finishing a good book. You've loved it and want to finish but also you don't want it to end. I think that sums it up perfectly. I'll be waiting with the balloons and party poppers for your post on Thursday night! :)

No I couldn't wait! I loved C25k, the whole darned lot of it, even though I got crocked three times. I couldn't wait to get back at it

Running in the wind and rain is fun in a mad sort of way. We all do it though it, and you always feel invigorated for it

Good luck for your last few runs!

No extra Brownie points but a HUGE well done.. we love the rain, and the hail and the wind and the snow and hills... the list goes on! It is amazing... you did really well and you felt great!

Good luck with the Graduation run... the badge is being polished, McFitty has the party poppers and I have the champagne!

If you think this was good...( and you did) just wait until the next stage of the journey :) Your way and in your own time Wow!
