Oooh this feels so grown up (if not terribly original!).
It's about 14 months since I started C25K and today I ran our local Race for Life. Despite the heat, dust and congested start, I managed to run through the finish gate with a clock time of 29:46, only my second ever sub-30 minute 5K. My first race done, I guess I no longer have any excuse to put off doing our local park run! I love how far I've come, in my own time and in my own way, since starting this program. It has genuinely changed my life in a major and very positive way.
I know I've said it a 100 times before, but this forum and all it's lovely contributors have played a huge part in that. Thank you to everyone who has encouraged me. In return, I hope this might encourage those who are starting out on their own C25K journey - it is a wonderful thing you are doing
