A Short Ode on Completing Week 9 Run 1

I ran into the village

Hair awry and cheeks on fire

The last two minutes gruelling

As my legs began to tire

But help ma boab I did it

What a feeling of elation!

And now there’s only two more runs

Between me and graduation 🙂

I even perfected the previously untried “remove shell top and tie around the waist” manoeuvre- without breaking my stride or pulling out my headphones- what a pro!

Well if you can take your shell top off without breaking stride nir pulling your earphones out then there is nothing stopping you graduating this week !

Well done, only 2 more to go !

It did, not sure there's a badge for it but there probably should be, if not you'll have to say you graduated c25k with a minor in stripping : )

Having survived my first “hen-do” at the weekend, strip tease was the last thing in my mind!!😳 But I am delighted to have run further, longer and slightly faster while removing my top! I must be a proper runner now🙂

👏🏼🎉👏🏼😄 Big poetry fan here, so can hardly wait for your Graduation Ode! Well done and head for that Finish in style. Maybe the final 100m will be decorated with flying garments? 🤣

Love it! I’m in training to get the jacket off without stopping as well!
