Hi, I am a 47yo mum of three (15,18,19) Brit living in Canada. Having read posts on this forum, I believe I have some of those lungs, genetically unsuited to running, I keep hearing about. Can walk non stop for days but run, no way. I've been in Canada since 2000 and have watched with interest the rise of running in U.K among the general public. One by one all the friends I stay in touch with, have posted how they have completed their first Park Run etc etc. I've known these people ages and really some of them were very unlikely runners. I started thinking maybe I could do it. So here I am in the wave of post London Marathon newbies to this forum. I reallly need the support this forum can provide for two reasons. First, there are no other c25k people within 996 miles of me according to app and no Park runs, Run for Life etc to aim for, no local support network. Second, there is snow on ground here for 5 months of the year and temperatures can be extreme.
Anyway, the purpose of this post is to yell and scream that "I DID IT!!!" Just completed W1/R1and survived😀😀😀
