Now I’m no Paula Radcliffe
And I know I ‘m no Sir Mo
I have it seems perfected
The art of running slow
But hey it doesn’t matter
And instead I will rejoice
In running 30 minutes
And giving snails like me a voice!
We’re up and off the sofa
And all across the land
In our shell tops, and our trainers
We are a mighty band!
We’re stronger and we’re fitter
And the feeling is so good
Accomplishing what so many of us
Thought we never could
So today I graduated
Who’d have thought I’d see the day
That this certified couch potato
Would complete Couch to 5k!
And in true Oscar fashion, I would now like to thank....
My husband- for encouraging me throughout despite the alarm going off at silly o’clock some days.
Shock Absorber sports bras for what has been -quite literally - an uplifting experience.
Laura - the unseen running buddy and mentor who got me through the past nine weeks. ( I didn’t mean the things I said....)
All the failed Eurovision musicians whose music ends up on these podcasts - you got me through but I am extremely grateful for never having to listen to the Julie song again. Ever.
And finally, to all my virtual running buddies on this forum- without you and your likes, comments, hints and laughs, I would not have found this experience half as much fun.
Happy running y’all! 🙂🙂🙂🙂
