Running is good for the soul!!!

In the past 3 weeks i cant believe how different and better i feel, and it is all down to running. I have had a crap few years, wont go into anything, but the feeling lately of actually looking forward to something even if it is just running feels amazing. I run and it feels all my problems disapear, i get home with a clear head and on a high. I havent felt this way in a long time. For all those contemplating doing c25k, just get out there and do it, u will be amazed how better u will feel!!! 👊🏼

The good news is that running goes on providing that feel good factor in your life, long after you graduate from C25k.

Exercise is just plain good for body, mind and soul. I have great reason to bless running for making me fit enough to get through critical illness with minimal side effects and for giving me some targets to aim for as I come out of the other side of treatment.

Running makes me smile.

keep running, keep smiling.

I can't wait to be well enough to try C25K. I have arthritis in my knee and I'm overweight so cannot run on it for a while. I walk and swim but so want to try some jogging/ running.

Thank you for posting Rachey80
