Milestone for me! ✅✅✅

So today I reached a milestone in my running journey. It may seem silly to others but for me it was a big achievement 🙋🏻

My friend who encouraged me to do C25k has been asking to run with me for ages. She’s a 10k runner and she loves to run with others. I myself had a block on it, mainly due to self confidence in my ability to run.

However, I cautiously agreed to go with her today for a 5k run in view to trying a Park run in 2018.

I really don’t know what I was worried about. We ran along the cycle path where she often runs. I found I was able to run with her and enjoy the odd conversation whilst saying good morning to lots of other fellow runners who run on the path. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely be running with her again. Thanks to her, I’ve found a love for running which I never thought could happen. Merry Christmas to all you lovely people who have encouraged and motivated me to continue my journey. Thank you so much 🙌🏻🙋🏻🎄🎅🏼🎉🥂😘

Thank you. We actually ran almost 6k and I felt so good at the end. It was good to see other runners enjoying their run and smiling along the way. I feel great 🙌🏻

It’s good to keep up our running over the Christmas period. Enjoy your Park run. That’s my next milestone. Not sure when yet but I have to do it. Have a great Christmas too 🎄🎅🏼🎉😀

Oh TJMazz that's wonderful!

- I really identify with that, I couldn't possibly run 5K with another person at the moment, but I'm also preparing for Park runs. Have a lovely Christmas.😀

There you are! No need to be worried.. I did Parkrun with my nephew this morning, it was a tad chilly! but soon warmed up when under way, my nephew got round in under 24 mins, so he comes back to run with me, slower! So we chat and the whole thing goes quicker to the finish for me, most enjoyable, woke me up! good ain't it! Happy Christmas!😊

Yes, you’re right. Just the Park run to conquer now. I’ve had lots of good reports about it so I’m sure it will be a good experience once I try it. Sounds like you had a great run too. Have a great Christmas 🎄

Well done you overcoming a worry. Happy running.
