WHOO-HOO! πŸŽˆπŸŽ†πŸŽ‰ πŸŽ“

Wow, I don't know what to say... there are so many people I need to thank.

I'd like to thank Michael Johnson, for all his encouragement... he never stopped believing in me. Thanks Michael!

I'd also like to thank all the people in this community for all their fantastic advice and support! It really was amazing to share this journey with you guys... really does feel like we did it together...I promised I wouldn't cry.

Seriously this has been amazing, and I'm recommending C25K and this community to everyone I know. I feel awesome today! Very, very happy! Whoo-hoo!πŸ˜†

Whoohoo! Congrats on a great achievement. Enjoy the next phase of your running journey - spend some time doing 30 minute runs and then when you're ready, you can decide if you want to go further or stay enjoying the 30 minute runs.

Thanks Sask! Yes it's going to be Parkrun and a couple of runs through the week. Later i'd like to start working my way up to 10k... when I'm comfortable.
