I believe I am the slowest snail in Oldfloss 's garden. Thats why I have smiled from ear to ear at Hidden 's picture about it doesn't matter how slow you go you are still lapping people on the couch. Never mind the pace, I have taken the slow route to week 9, I must have been hanging around here for at least 11 or 12 weeks. When I do my graduation run I know I will be no where near the 5K and I really don't care. I am running. I have thoroughly enjoyed the journey, the ups, the downs, the tears and the tantrums! Believe me I was sat right here above the farm kicking my legs in a complete tantrum because I was so sick of running up hill! Never mind, not only can I run but I can run uphill. I can't thank you all enough for teaching me slow and steady and because I am so slow and so steady I know exactly what I need to be doing post graduation.
Im very lucky that mum and dad are fit, healthy and nearly 90. It warms my heart when I hear dad telling people that I run ..'and she is a grandma you know' he proudly says. My hubby shakes his head and he and the cows and sheep can't believe this aberration amongst them on the farm, my daughters are inviting me to join them on 5K race for life and park runs, one of my grandaughters asked me to run alongside her as she has just learnt to ride a two wheeler. It seems only 5 minutes a go a friend laughed at me when I said I was starting C25K and another exclaimed 'but you are not built for running' But I stuck at it and because I did, life is different, life is good and I've made lots of new friends right here.
