5K Poppy Run

Afternoon All,

Well I am delighted to say that I completed the 5K Poppy Run around the beautiful Willen Lake in Milton Keynes on behalf of The Royal British Legion this morning. Also managed a personal best time of 36.36 mins.

Huge thanks to C25K and all on this forum who have given me invaluable advice and support over the last 3 months that has meant I have achieved this.

Couldn't be prouder xxx

Thanks OldFloss your wise words reverberated through my head as I went ;0)

Brilliant and what a gorgeous venue to do it. Noticing you're sporting a lovely pink smile, not poppy red at all! Well done you.
