Whoop whoop W5 R3 not enough room here for all my whoops!!

I did it, I did it - I ran for 20 minutes! How is this possible?! I cant believe I did it, but to be honest there was no way I was going to let it beat me today. I woke up so early (I think I was a bit nervous about it) and set off and on the way all I could say to myself was, I'm so going to do this, oh god its such a long way, i am so going to do this! And I did it, like a little snail mind. I gave myself a little clap after 15 minutes and 18 minutes and at the end there was just enough energy left for a little jump and a whoop and then I got a bit teary but good teary! And thats that. Just had to share because I could not have got as far as this without all you lovely people and your support, and of course a big hug for Laura! x
