She believed she could, so she did!

Feels like this post has been a long time coming but at the same time feels like yesterday I couldn't run for 60 seconds! I've just completed Wk9 Run3...Me!!!

I cannot thank everyone enough for their support, advice and constant encouragement.

I am truly inspired every day by the stories I read on this forum, whether they be of hope, pain, achievement or adversity & you will never know how grateful I am for every 'like' & every comment. I have NEVER achieved anything in terms of sport & this means so much.

I will run 4 miles on Saturday for The Grim Challenge in aid of Macmillan & I will enjoy it - when we signed up in August I was petrified but it has been my motivation over the last 9 weeks.

To anyone struggling in their first few weeks, please keep going, one foot in front of the other, slow & steady. I know it's a cliche but I promise you, if I can do it, anyone can. Trust in the programme & use this forum to its fullest & most of all, believe!

You are amazing & you can do this 🏃🏽‍♀️🏃💪☺😘

Thank you! Don't think we'll be running 4 miles with the mud but feel more confident in my fitness & stamina now. My record is 5K in 42 minutes but that will come with time 😳

Exactly! I had my lovely son all sorted for his first Parkrun last Saturday only for it to be cancelled because of frost :( Hopefully we will get it done on Saturday. Maybe that is something you could look at if there is one near you.
