July 2017 Graduation Badges

Hello everybody and welcome to July!

Please leave your username here for me so we can organise your well deserved graduation badge.

Please feel free to download and save the Graduation badge that has been kindly designed by RunaroundSue

We will try not to leave you waiting too long as we know how great they feel when they arrive.

We would like to clarify the position of earning your graduation badge.

To get your badge you will have completed the full training podcasts and be able to run for 30 min.

It does NOT matter if you cannot run 5km, you are a graduate after running 30 min for three times.

So it is fair to everybody, please do not ask for your badge until you have completed week 9 run 3

Many Congratulations and a huge Well done ! :-)

RFC and Ju-ju xxx

Hi, my wife 'wightdiamondgirl' and I graduated on the 14th June after taking 11weeks to complete the C25K programme with Laura. Whilst we took a little longer than the planned programme due to holidays, we consider that this is still good as we are both in our 70th year! Thanking you in anticipation for our Graduation Badges.

Training for the run has been helped me greatly after the loss of my beautiful dog Spot. So a big thank you to all those who have had a hand in producing this brilliant app. 😍

Hi RFC - just to be clear, the graduation 'badge' is the silver lozenge shaped label saying 'graduate ' that you make live by our names (but which currently shows only if you log on via the website not via the app). The lovely designed (by RAS) certificate is an image we can download and put our names on ourselves and maybe reload as our profile pix? If we want to? Many thanks btw - all your and other admins input is much appreciated πŸ˜‰

Yes that right. The certificate was done so you can save it and print it off and frame it or put it on your fridge sort of thing, some people wanted something that they could touch πŸ˜€. the badge is virtual and is the little grey "graduate" next to your name.

Hi - I'm Sarahjf2 and I completed W9r3 this morning at my fastest pace so far, despite thigh stiffness (that goes away when running!) and tummy problems over the last 10 days or so.

Still only managing just over 3k in 30 mins of running (4k with the warm up and cool down walks included), but i'm 52, seriously overweight, and I've only got little legs!

I might treat myself to a few days off now, before trying the plus podcasts and maybe even a parkrun.

I've been lurking for the past 9 weeks, so this is also my first post - thanks to everyone who has contributed such useful and motivating messages.
