I have just graduated this morning and I'm absolutely delighted ! When 2017 began, never did I think by the end of it, I would be a 'runner'. It was mid October when I had my epiphany moment and decided I was going to do this - I didn't think about it - I just did it ! That's the key, we think about things and procrastinate too much - JUST DO IT because you can !
I have loved every single minute of this programme but I know there is no way I would have achieved this without the immense support of the forum. I feel I have taken so much from it but have not gave anything back , therefore I just wanted to say a huge, sincere, heartfelt thank you to you all! The advice and encouragement along the way is priceless (from having a gait analysis, wearing the correct footwear, even tieing my laces a different way to help with burning soles). If you have a running problem - someone here has definitely got an answer.
The warm and friendliness of you all is overwhelming, especially when there is so much hatred in our world. We don't know each other personally but there is a sense of togetherness that is so uplifting and positive.
I just wanted to share this card that my fiancé sent me. I love it ! I can't stop talking about running and all the euphoria it brings although I've met a few green eyed monsters along the way - jealousy is a terrible thing lol !
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and may 2018 bring you lots of health, happiness and running challenges.
Happy running x
