Yep..pretty much!

We laugh, we cry. punch the little dances... whoop and holler.. usually week 6, when Laura calls you a 'proper runner' I scared an old lady half to death by shouting, "hooray"! when that happened to me !

( Oh gosh, I'm an old lady!)

Well done you...keep it up and keep posting.. and when we get you out there... wow...just wait :) x

I wish I had found this site 4 months ago. It would have been a great encouragement to know I was not alone. I have now finished the C25K and did all except the final run on a treadmill. I have now done a park run and have got brave enough to run on the streets. I keep breaking into smiles of elation because I cannot believe where I was before my birthday. The thought of running made me breathless. Well done secksy34 on starting and enjoy it all the way
