New Graduate :-)

New Graduate :-)

Hi

Did my final run last night, I hadn't hit 5k within the 30 minutes, so I pushed on and did 5k in 38 mins. I have been combining the plan with fundraising for the Running Down Dementia campaign, as my Mum is a sufferer. So far I have raised over £800.

The photo is of Mum and me as I finished my graduation run at her Care Home - which seemed fitting.

I am so happy, and hope to continue running 5K 3 times a week, aiming to improve my time.

What a great plan the C25K is. Thanks to all involved.

And I will admit to weeping a few tears of exhaustion and sheer joy at the end.

Congratulations!

Well done for graduating and raising the sponsorship.

Once I've graduated, I'll look at doing something like that, to use my new found running for something worthwhile.
