Yesterday I ran my first ever 10k and I'm mightily proud of myself, infact you won't believe how proud I am, but this post isn't about me. You see, as I ran I got to thinking about this forum and about all the wonderful people who have posted on here and how they have inspired me with their fantastic deeds and can-do attitude.
I started c25k in early 2014 and have been in love with running ever since. During that time this forum has kept me enthusiastic and committed, even when injury stopped me for running for months on end. There are few things more calculated to whet the appetite for a run than to come on here and read a few posts and see what everyone else is up to.
So to everyone who's helped me along the way -from IannodaTruffe, ju-ju-, Realfoodieclub ,misswobble and everyone else who was here before I joined and who offered such great advice when I was a newbie; to the lovely people who started about the same time as me, like poppypug, Curlygurly2, Irishprincess and far too many others to name individually who have been on this running adventure with me; to those lovely people who haven't posted for awhile but who aren't forgotten, like Rignold, Miles_Yonder and of course Slow_Rob and dozzer19; and to amateurwriter and all you other wonderful people who have encouraged me with your stories of courage, determination and success, thank you. To mis-quote Isaac Newton, if I can run further now, it's because I'm standing on the shoulders of giants. You, my friends, are all giants. xx
