Graduated!

Hi all, I’ve done W9R3 this morning! πŸ˜€πŸ₯‡πŸ†πŸ‘ I didn’t quite manage 5K in 30 mins, but I did manage 32:53 for 5K so more than happy with that!

Who’d have thought I’d be saying that 9 weeks ago? πŸ€”πŸ€—

I’ve booked a nice meal at a Brasserie in South Croydon to celebrate at lunchtime πŸ₯©πŸŸπŸ·

Thanks to you all for the support over the journey, I wouldn’t have made it without your help 😍

Shuffle along the podium please, there’s a little bloke trying to get up there! πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜€

Many thanks 😊 I had a lovely meal. I expect there were lots of naughty things πŸ₯©πŸŸπŸ§πŸ·in there I shouldn’t be eating, but it’s a celebration after all so I can forgive myself for that! πŸ˜€πŸ‘

Definitely! I hope at least one large glass of something was also involved. You can run it off tomorrow ☺

I’m not one to do things by halves, so I had a carafe of Pinot Grigio with three coursesπŸ˜€ Don’t think I’ll need to eat much for the rest of today ☺️ As you say, there’s always tomorrow to work it off! 😊
