Class of August 2017 Graduate!!!

Class of August 2017 Graduate!!!

Whoop whoop! After 9 hard weeks and 27 sessions I'm ecstatic to have completed the wonderful C25K programme.

Thanks to you all for the encouragement, support, tips and general camaraderie throughout either directly to me or what I've read and been inspired by.

To the mentors and graduates πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘

To my fellow novices πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ Go for it, if I can then you can! 😁

Thank you! It was slightly tougher I have to say but there was a 13 hour gap between my last beer and my run! Luckily I didn't fall asleep on the train otherwise my run might have had an extra 20 miles added to it!

My badge has been applied for, just waiting for those good folks to sort it

Thank you Mrs JCR! The pink is me, I think it must be on your running colour chart somewhere! May have to get fluorescent yellow shorts too....!

Congratulations, raspberry diva is already taken, however no-one has co-opted strawberry bellini yet. I have first dibs on sorbet....

Remember though with those new fluoro shorts you will never be able to go to London except within the borders of the fluoro sanctuary known as Regents Park...
