Life after Couch to 5k

Dave82 profile image

So today I graduated!! I’m so happy, it’s been a long journey since losing my job to an ongoing illness, I vowed never to let it beat.

I’m now 3 stone lighter and feeling good for the future, although this won’t cure me, it does improve my daily life.

Huge thanks to the community for all the positivity a lot of us couldn’t have done it without you all x
