Well, that’s me graduated this morning. πŸ˜„ Lovely morning, dry and sunny, if a tad windy! Kept Strava off so I had no distractions. πŸ‘ No dramas, just a lovely morning run, enjoying my environment and the fresh air. Added a wee blast of energy at the end for good measure and that was me done. 😊 The tortoise has graduated! πŸ€Έβ€β™‚οΈ As we all know, most of us would not keep going with the same enthusiasm, if it wasn’t for this forum, the administrators and all the lovely people that take part in it! πŸ˜„ πŸ’• So, thanks so much for all your support and friendship and may we all continue for many years to come. πŸ’•πŸ‘πŸ»Think I’m a bit in shock it’s done but this is only the beginning....πŸ˜ŠπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ’

Happy running everyone! Xx

WELL DONE Gannet1. I'll be celebrating with you tomorrow when I do mine. Have you managed 5k yet? My aim was to hit 5k on my birthday on Wednesday, but that's probably a bit too ambitious! I'll be following you on your next steps!!!!

PS - I totally agree with you about the support on this forum. I'd never have got where I am today if it wasn't for this. HUGE THANK YOU to everyone out there posting support xx
