I can't actually believe I am writing this. I was the classic over weight 54 year old man who spent most of his life sitting down other than the odd game of golf. Totally unfit walking up stairs felt an effort and yet......here I am a graduate of a running app just extra ordinary. If anyone out there reads this who is in week one or two, trust me KEEP GOING it us absolutely worth it, and if I can do this any one of you can!!!
GRADUATION!: I can't actually believe I am... - Couch to 5K
