Finally Graduated after 5 months!

I actually did it. The impossible! Just ran 5k for the first time. I'm lost for words. After so many set backs, injuries and illnesses I nearly gave up a couple of months ago but it's safe to say the running bug has well and truly got me hooked. At the start I couldn't run a minute without nearly passing out and some of those first 5 mins runs nearly made me throw up with exhaustion. I was convinced I'd never be able to run 5k!

Mid 50s was overweight never run in my life before, dodgy knees and true couch potato before this. If I can do it most of the population can!! So happy. πŸƒπŸ˜€πŸŽ‰πŸΎπŸ‘πŸ˜†
