Yayy! My youngest has completed the c25k

Not sure if I can write it on here but my young son completed the c25k last night and graduated, I'm so proud of him because he was not doing any exercise what so ever and I've managed to get him off his computer game and talked him into doing the c25k with me, his job being a desk job weren't helping his weight and fitness but now he is a different person altogether and much fitter. He barely had to repeat any run oh! to be young. He wants to repeat the c25k again which I'm doing myself. I've told him to join the community here but he passed on that one. lol

I'm going to purchase him the badge and t.shirt might as well get me one too so that I can wear the t.shirt and keep me motivated.

Best wishes to all who are running the c25k keep up the good work.

  • Not sure if you can write it on here? I should jolly well think so. It's a great achievement whether you're 7 or 70. Well done that young man!

  • Thank you Usain, I shall past your compliment to him. He is 22 years old normally he leave me behind in great distant but when he first started he couldn't even run for 2 minutes.


  • Please pass on our congratulations.

  • Thank you Lon, I sure will. :)

  • I love reading posts like this! Well done to you for inspiring your son, and congratulations to your son for completing the programme!πŸ™‚

  • Thank you Sandra, I shall pass on your compliment to him. I eventually got him to join me once he started I'm glad to say he kept at it even went running after coming home from work some days he was tired but he still went out there and got to the end. I've ordered him the c25k badge and t.shirt can't wait to give them him, he deserve it.


  • Brilliant. My not-very-sporty 16yr old son has almost completed it too. What great role models we are!😊

  • Love it, tell him well done from me! Have you introduced him to Parkrun? Happy runningπŸ˜ƒπŸƒπŸ»
