Thank You C25Kers

Thank you for all your support and encouragement...You've helped me keep things in perspective...You've advised me either directly or indirectly...You've listened and kindly responded when I've droned on on about nothing or just chuddering and moaned in general.. and you got me through the programme...

That was my graduation run done and dusted tonight.. still in the dark. but hey I did it... 🎈

One day I might even enjoy it...

  • Congratulations Mother Pip😊

    YOU did it...well done...

    Keep running..wearing your graduation badge😊xx

  • Thank you x

  • A huge congratulations. That is some achievement! If you carry on running / consolidate then you will start to see the benefits - and they are definitely enjoyableπŸƒπŸ‹πŸ»πŸ˜Ž

  • I'm definitely going to try. Been having funny feet issues in Week 9. Painful during run 1... Bit bad. Run 2 and sore toe run 3... Maybe will not tie my laces as tight πŸ‘Ÿ

  • πŸ’₯Mother Pip, Pip, Hooray!!!πŸ’₯

    It's been such a joy following your journey... Now you're at the start line proper. You can run as you feel and where and when you decide. Keep it up won't you. One day you WILL enjoy it☺



    Cake and fizz time for you!


  • McFitty ! You are here:)

    Good to see you x We have been struggling to get the parties going as well as you do :) I just keep ending up drinking too much champagne !

    Hope you are doing okay, all of you xxxx

  • Not getting on here as much as I'd like, Floss. Lots of time with Mil for now, but couldn't resist when I saw Mother pip had graduated 😊😊😊

  • Good, enjoy the fizz x

  • That's a great party spread. Thank you for coming and livening it up...So kind...

    I can't believe I've done it really... Might try local parkrun again this week...But I might just volunteer again as they are a bit short and we are in Glasgow on the week after so aim to run there so i might save myself

  • Whoop whoop! Many congratulations to you πŸΎπŸŽ‰πŸŽˆπŸ‘ You should feel very proud, you've worked hard and achieved something grand at the end of it all. Now your running fantasies can begin and you can go anywhere and explore πŸ€—

    Don't forget to ask for your badge - the link is on the right.

  • Ok wearing my badge with pride... But no running fantasies yet hahaha

  • Hooray!!!! You blinking well did it... you GRADUATE you!!!

    You kept going, despite any setbacks and you ran that run :)

    Maybe, just maybe, ( because you are going to carry on running), now, you will start to enjoy it more...?

    It will be your journey, your way, your type of runs...distance and time no object, and so many fun things to experiment with, out there:)

    When you are ready and recovered from the Graduation party.. try. as I did, some runs for pure joy:)

    Run, as far as you wish for as long as you wish and enjoy the fact that you are, indeed a runner :)

    Congratulations! Now, go and get that shiny badge :)

  • Pure Joy? I wish.. i need to work on my head and get out in daylight where i can be seen and learn not to fear....

  • FANTASTIC!!!!! One day I'll get there as well: I've stopped predicting when! You've been one of my supporters all the way through so far ( like you, lots and lots of moans and grumbles, served with a generous helping of procrastination). I hope you'll still be around. If you discover the key to enjoying this running stuff then please share the secret. Good luck you Graduate you .....

  • Haha... I will still be here to moan and catch up and learn from everyone... Keep on at it. If I can do it.... ! And maybe one day i will find pleasure in it...But I won't hold my breath... Thanks for your kind words x

  • Good, glad you'll still be around. Forced myself outside again today, essentially doing "1 and a bit" week 1 sessions in succession for the Parkrun 5K course again. Would have been sub 50 mins for the first time, very slow but getting better. An outside W2 next. Don't hold your breath, you need the oxygen .....

  • Good... Keep going... I've called off my parkrun this weekend as body protesters. Will volunteer again as that also is good for getting me out of my comfort zone

  • Yeaaaaaaaaa! Well done runner! A very fine achievement, you have dug deep and done it!

    Such great news, you have even bought McFitty out of semi/retirement to organise the party!

    Keep running, be very proud of yourself! πŸŽˆπŸŽ“πŸ…πŸΎβ­οΈ

  • Thank you...I feel as though i have achieved something.. Venturing out for run 1 in week 1 on Jan 2nd was massive...And completing it too......Amazed I was...

    I decided from the outset that no way was I going to push myself into a 9 week completion aim...But to manage to do it in 16 weeks feels great.

  • That badge looks great!

  • Got there in the end MotherPip ! We all had the faith and knew you would :)

    Your post with the single balloon at the end made me chuckle :D ! Sounds like a half-hearted 'Yay go me'! Come on now, whoop it up, it's a massive achievement...xx

  • Whoo hooo you did it! Well done and how fabulous will that graduate badge look as you run - it will be sparkling & twinkling in the sun. Now you can do whatever you please, short runs, long runs, hills (ooer lol) there are loads of options. Yes, I can say that you will definitely start to enjoy it. Enjoy the fizz & cake at your graduation :D :D

  • Fantastic- well done you!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽˆπŸ˜†πŸŒš
