Thanks, CaroleC....thanks for inspiring me through your training and running of the Saltash Half Marathon...thanks for sending me the link to this website 10 weeks ago.......and thanks for never saying, "Do you think you should be doing this at YOUR age?"
Thanks, NHS, C25K, and JR21 and the site volunteers...this is an excellent programme, well thought out...designed to allow even a 64 year old ex-triathlete/marathoner to reclaim her place in the starting corral.
And a BIG thanks to all the bloggers ... without your support, and stories of successes (and some "not so successes"), some hilariously funny, some painful to read, this would have been a lot less "fun". I look forward to reading this site every day.
What's next? I want to run at the 5k level until I'm "strong" at it...and I have a 5K race coming up August 11th. The recent bout with the "knee(s) I'm not speaking to" has shown me it won't do me any good to push too much, too soon. This fall I'll probably start pushing out toward a 10k. CaroleC and I have a tentative plan to run the Loch Ness Marathon in 2 years. When I get to England I want to meet each and every one of you in person, as I already feel we are friends.
