Well I didn’t do as well as Phoenix, it I did my 28 mins so that’s w8r3 done! I was at the back and I was doing a very slow ‘jog’ the lady I was with walked!! They didn’t seem to mind though and I proved I could hold a conversation. Still only covered 3k in the 28 mins! I will be going back....although perhaps they might not want me to!! Happy running all 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️

Well done Shelley, you are so brave! And running for 28 minutes whilst talking is, quite frankly, an amazing achievement 👏 👏 👏

They’d best want you to! You ran 28 minutes and beat a fear of running in front of others... that’s an amazing job tonight. As for the back runner walking... the record for marathon walking is under 3 hours, I don’t know any people personally who can run sub 3... and nobody can run sub 2... and the biggest impact of running I can measure is my walking is speeding up. So I wouldn’t be measuring my performance against what was probably a quick runner walking at very fast pace.

Well done!
