Wow wk 5 run 3. I did it!

I'm shocked! This is the run I feared most well fear no more. I've only actually gone and done this, I feel amazing. I've never been able to run always found it difficult, made me feel ill and started off my asthma but I can honestly say none of that is happening and I really enjoy it. Feel part of the community now with the local runners always greeting me as we pass.

I do think all of you comments have helped me to complete this run as I've been reading posts about how people feared it and that it wasn't that bad which gave me a positive attitude and I have to agree with all those people. After this I feel I can do anything and I am going to continue with running as I feel great.

Thank you all ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
