Boom !!!! Only gone and Graduated :)

Boom !!!! Only gone and Graduated :)

Well this afternoon was my last C25K run and after 9 weeks of following the program and taking loads of advice from all you great inspiring people here in the C25K community I would like to thank everyone for helping me start my running journey :)

For anyone questioning if the program works here is my answer :-

I started with a weight of 18st 11lb (so not a featherweight) ........ if I can haul my arse out the door from zero exercise and start with 60 sec run followed with a walk etc there is hope for all the people who don't think they can,

if like me you think you can never run .... give it a go ...... just try it .... I would have bet big money I could never run but I am walking no RUNNING proof you can do it and believe me when I say you will never look back :)

Its not easy I still remember week 1 and gasping for breath in a minute and now to running 30 minutes non-stop.

Believe in yourself and let this wonderful community help and support you, I did and I will never look back :)

Once again I just want to say thank you :)
