So I went to bed last night totally undecided on should I run in the morning as I have a busy day but got my kit ready just in case, I had earlier in the week decided that Thursday was run day . Tossed and turned for an age in bed and decided the only way I would ever get any sleep was by committing to a run in the morning. So up and out this morning for my W9R3 . The nerves kicked in and I felt very excited ... Too excited ! But I did rein it in. I saw a runner , who voiced how hard running was and we shared a mutual smile ... She saw me as a runner !!! Crazy lady. So the run went on and I plodded along past now familiar sites and remembering when the thought of being able to run so far would have been laughable... So I approached the last minute and looked into the distance for my welcoming committee ... Where was the gold finishing ribbon? Michael Johnson and Paula Radcliffe were not waiting for me or the brass band... as for the ticker tape just leaves on the ground... All as I could see in the distance were two horses in a field with long faces.... Not the finish I thought I was going to have... Then I remembered they all thought I was running tomorrow , not today ... So I got into the car and pulled down my vanity mirror and saw the person I had been dreaming about seeing for the last 9 weeks......... Mrsrun... THE RUNNER!........ The perfect finish.
W9R3... Do dreams come true?: So I went to bed... - Couch to 5K

Well done, you graduate you. So happy it went well for you. My last runs tomorrow, but I’m nervous, not sure whether to put off til Friday. It’s so silly.
Think I’m just gonna go for it.
Well done again. 👏👏👏👏
Many congratulations on your graduation, fellow runner.

Omg well done!!!! You’ve done it!!!! Despite the lack of ticker tape I bet it feels amazing!!!!! 🏆
Thank you. It is still not in my head that I did it!... I shall reflect later tonight on what I have done and what so many on here before me have and read up on what they went onto do. I hope you are on the road to recovery!
I’m feeling much better amazed at how quickly- hopefully can try a run in a few days! Sounds like you should try some consolidation runs before you talk yourself out of it! I can’t believe how far we’ve all come! Keep going! 🥳
Yes yes yes 💃🍾Congratulations!
I'm so very pleased for you.
Opportunitys lie ahead for you now.
Those Gremlins can be sent packing to some other starting the programme cos we know everyone needs one at some point, or shall you keep it to remind you of progress?😂
Just brilliant 🥳😘
Thank you so much. I think I will keep a gremlin with me as I know when to use it to my advantage and when to kick it into the cow field !
Wise choice. Keep your mind occupied lol So what's next?
My hundred mile walk starts a week on Saturday , so I need to put a bit training in for that . Then I fancy running by the sea ( I live in a land locked area) and some Park Runs....... And then a medal !
Good luck on the walking, sounds fun. The sea is beautiful also on my to do list.
As for park run, now that's an experience you will never forget! I've only done 1 and realy enjoyed it. I'm certain you will too. Plus usually rains on a Saturday morning, another thing we like lol
Congratulations. Feels amazing doesn't it? Xx
Yay 🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳 Fabulous. Well done Mrs run.
Enjoy your moment and look forward to your next running challenges.
You are an inspiration to many so please keep us updated as you progress and get stronger and stronger. Happy days 🏃♂️ 🏃♀️
Thank you so much and thank you for your believing in me and supporting me. I sure will keep you all updated on my running .... Might have to hold back a bit as I go on my long walk a week on Saturday... But all being well , Liverpool docks will be seeing me running along it in the near future... Happy running to you.
