W8R3 - tomato selfie and first 5k under my belt

W8R3 - tomato selfie and first 5k under my belt

I DID IT! Ran my first 5k round the block in 30:54 - feeling so accomplished right now! Your encouragement through this forum has helped me keep on going; thanks for letting me be part of your club.

I got through Man from Snowy River 1 1/2 times in my head while running (the half was because I forgot where I was up to).

And in honour of the occasion, here is a tomato-face selfie after I got home :) #ThisGirlCan

  • Super, well done. No stopping you now. Just take it easy through to graduation now, there is plenty of time to work on speed/distance.

    By coincidence, here is my W8R3 (quite a while ago). Seem familiar?


  • Yup - almost at graduation :) planning to go to park run in 2 weeks - would have gone next weekend, but we are away.

    Wow - that's very similar! :)

  • Brilliant! That first 5k is special!🙂

  • Brilliant! Well Done. Hope to be there soon.

  • That's brilliant! Well done to you. Nice and steady now for the last few runs.

  • This girl can indeed! Well done 😀 Bet you feel epic 😀

  • Well done.
