January Graduation Badges...2019

Hello everybody and welcome to January 2019 !

Please leave your username here for me, so we can organise your well deserved Graduation badge.

Please feel free to download and save the Graduation badge certificate, that has been kindly designed by RunaroundSue

We will try not to leave you waiting too long as we know how great they feel when they arrive.

We would like to clarify the position of earning your Graduation badge.

To get your badge you will have completed the full training podcasts and be able to run for 30 min.

It does NOT matter if you cannot run 5 km; you are a graduate after running 30 min for three times.

To ensure that it is fair to everybody, please do not ask for your badge until you have completed Week 9 Run 3.

Many Congratulations and a Huge Well Done ! :-)

Oldfloss, RFC, Ju-Ju and Millsie-j, xxx

Hello, thank you for organising this option. I completed my graduation run today and it has been a wonderful process. I would love to wear my graduate grey smudge with pride on this forum and may even head over to the exciting and intimidating world of 5-10k...Consolidation runs for a while though.

I have completed c25k and i am so chuffed with myself. 50, overweight, never ran nor believed possible.It is a gentle jog with feet not full of spring and bounce like a gazelle, but perhaps with more weight loss and increased fitness and strength i hope it could look a little more relaxed. Havenโ€™t posted here previously, but reading posts from others definitely helped me through. Thank you so much.
