Anything is possible

Not posted in a while but still running and took part in a 5k race on Sunday. I say race because at least 100 of the 260 odd participants were racing. Me not so much. Although I did knock 1 and a half minutes off my PB bringing me home in (chip time) 42 minutes. I was totally overwhelmed and nervous but it was such fun and everyone (mmm perhaps except for the 100 who were too focused) were very supportive and lovely.

4 months ago this seemed impossible, now 3stone lost and a new found love of exercise, anything is possible!!

Glorious! Well done xx

Well done you, inspiring 👍🏻

Well done, keep up the good work. You are very inspiring. Those “fun” runs scared me so I joined parkrun and now they don’t seem so daunting 🏃🏽‍♀️

That's a decent time for you Carolinemcd, don't bother too much about those racers at the front, what we call them here on C25K gazelles, they are usually the club harrier runners out to beat each other and get PB's in sub-20 minute times, you did very well, nice photo of you with your medal.

Caroline that’s immense! Congratulations! 🎉🍾🥇

I can’t wait for a medal! 🥇🥇🥇🥇 Bet you’re proud, and so you should be. 🏃‍♀️👏🏃‍♀️👏
