OMG W9R1 done!!! Am away at the moment but didn’t want to miss a run, especially such an important one so my running gear came with me. I got up at 6.30 as it is so hot and ran through the shaded woods on Brownsea Island where we are staying. Totally beautiful and what a place to do my first 30 minutes 🏃🏽‍♀️. Am so thrilled !!!

Thank you very much 😁

Wow, what a great location for a momentous run - I have great memories of the times I have visited. To be able to enjoy it while it was early (and presumably still quiet) is very special. It's times like that it's worth going through the more challenging bits for! Only 2 more runs till graduation now!
