Race for Life my first official 5K achieved yahoooooooooo

This has been an amazing day. My goal in March was to run the Race for Life with my daughter, that was before I had heard about C25K. I have to say that without this programme and all your amazing support I really dont think I would have run all the way round today. The going was quite tough with roads and very long grass (at least 6 inches long!!!) but I just kept thinking that I was not going to stop as I wanted to be able to blog that I had done it! I have ended up with a blister on my foot but that is such a small price to pay. As for my time............38 mins :) not bad for an oldie.

  • This is a great programme, if I can do it then anyone can :) The furthest that I could run was 100yds when I was at school and now I can run 5K it really is amazing and all thanks to Laura and the community who have supported me throughout as they will you. Keep running and enjoy :)
