One year on........1st Runniversary!

One year on........1st Runniversary!

Today I ran a special 5k to celebrate one year since I completed my Week 9 Run 3 and graduated from the programme. I really never believed that I could run 5k and was so proud to achieve that last year. I am still running and love it! I am so grateful that I discovered C25k while browsing on the NHS website one day - it is such a great programme. But perhaps more importantly I am so pleased that I discovered this amazing community. I would like to thank everyone who has supported, encouraged and advised me during this journey - you are all lovely, inspiring and wonderful people. If you are just starting out on your own running adventure I wish you all the best - run, relax and enjoy :)

  • Happy Runiversary Sue :)

  • That was a speedy reply! Thanks very much John, I had a lovely relaxing run today :)

  • What an inspirational post skyesue, and so timely for me. Thank you. I've just come in from my W9R3 run and whilst feeling elated was also wondering "where to now"? You're so right about the wonderful community support, I know I wouldn't have persevered beyond W3 without their encouragement and advice, but now you've motivated me to mark 30th March as my Graduation Day and diary in regular anniversary runs to mark my progress in 5k and beyond..... not looking to do long distances but hopefully I'll get a little faster!! Cheers Skyesue - Keep on Running !

  • Thanks for your reply. Definitely a big star on the calendar/diary to remind you, it is such a great achievement - very well done to you :) don't forget to ask for your shiny graduation badge!

  • Wow - I like the sound of a shiny badge - how do I get it and how does my profile get changed to Graduate status,??? I really hadn't anticipated a successful completion ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿธ๐Ÿ’œ

    Go to couch to 5k main page and look on the right hand side - pinned posts. Look for one posted by poppypug: March Graduation badges - get yours here!

    Or look up poppypug and find it on her posts. :)

  • Happy runniversary for yesterday Sue! It looks beautiful over there, congratulations on keeping on running (and enjoying it too! ๐Ÿ˜Š)

  • Thanks aliboo70 Been calm and sunny here recently but yesterday rain was forecast for the afternoon. I judged it well, got home as it started to drizzle!

  • Happy runniversary!

    Yep, it's a life changer isn't it. Free too! What could be finer ๐Ÿ˜€

    Apart from perhaps being able to run on Skye ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Yes, it is great to be able to learn something new and challenge ourselves - especially later in life.

  • Happy runniversary! It's amazing isn't it - we're still running one year later! Part of me still thinks "does that make me a runner?"

  • You celebrated your runniversary recently too, well done. Yes it feels great to be still running; I find setting goals has helped me. But I agree I still don't really feel that I am a proper runner - more like a plodder or a jogger ;)

  • Gorgeous photo.

    Happy runniversary!

  • Thank you, yes I am lucky to be able to run in such a beautiful place.

  • Happy Runniversary Sue, heres to the next one ! :-)

    Running for a whole year , its just amazing where this programme can take us .

    Many Congratulations to you xxx

  • Thanks poppypug! Yes, I am totally amazed. I remember asking my hubby to drive in the car down to the slipway to work out how far it was. It was a shock to realise that I would need to run from home all the way to the slipway AND back again to achieve 5k! But I did it!

  • Thank you for sharing your journey with us, it's what makes this forum great. Happy runniversary Sue xxx
