Three cheers for that lady..............no, no, no.........four cheers.....at least!!

It has been a huge pleasure following your journey, Annie.

Your positive attitude, application and tireless support for others have kept me smiling.............it is why I am still here six years after graduation.

I suspect you have already checked out the guide to post C25K running linked to by GoGo_JoJo

Now have we got any badges left........... been a bit of a rush on them this weekend...................aaaaaah, yes.............. Annieapple

That badge is well deserved.

Keep running, keep smiling.

Many congratulations Annie. 🏃🏼‍♀️🏆🥇It’s such a fabulous feeling isn’t it. And keep that positive attitude and you will be amazed at what you could do!

Two years ago this month I started the C25K as another new thing in my 60th birthday year. Yesterday I ran (jogged, hobbled, stumbled) with over 20,000 people around my first half marathon. And believe me the excitement and pride of getting over that finish line was unbelievable.

So don’t stop at 5 there is the most amazing world out there!!

Thank you Annieapple, I'm building up my strength and stamina still and this week on holiday and enjoying my joffling around beautiful Suffolk countryside, so different views and terrain which is exciting. Knees are holding up, so I might just try picking up W7:R3 later this week and see how it goes. I'm confident I'll get to graduation at some point, soon'ish. Hope you have a fab trip to Canada.
