W9R3 - Done and dusted, massive thanks to all of you here who have been amazingly supportive, funny, kind and helpful.
I feel amazed, surprised, delighted and exhausted all in one! I am slow, I don't think I'll ever get much faster, but I'm running, really running for 30 minutes non stop and it feels fantastic.
I've learned a lot about myself on this running journey and you know what? I actually like what I've learned.
Onwards and upwards - I'm really looking forward to carrying on with running and if I never manage any more than this I'll be a happy lady.
Thank you all again and to any one at all just starting out and wondering 'can I do this' YES you can
