Can't Stop Me Now...First 5k!

Amazing! Although the route was hilly and slippery in parts, i loved the thrill of completing my first RUN! I almost started crying when i was in the final stretch, but quickly realized sobbing would seriously screw up my breathing. It has been hard work, but i only hope to build on it, improve my time and set my goals higher. Thank you so much for this program and this wonderful community.

  • Very well done! You sound as though you really enjoyed it. Lots more races to come then?
