W8R3 Who Would Have Thought!

I can hardly believe I am writing this having completed W8R3. And it was effortless. Honest! I even managed to increase my speed in the last 60 seconds which I have NEVER, repeat NEVER been able to do in all my previous runs. Normally I am ready to quit so tend to slow down. But not today. Today another new me took over and screamed "We love this!"

I am truly grateful to all the runners out there who keep my spirits up and cheer me on. I am achieving the impossible. After this I now believe NOTHING is impossible.

Thanks folks! Happy running. πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Thanks for the encouragement!

Brilliant! Same run as me today. I did not enjoy the previous two runs due to stitch but this one was perfect and upped the pace in the final five minutes too. Go Us! (*whispers* one week to go...)
