WOOOO HOOOOOOO! I've done it! I need a new badge!!!!

Morning everyone xx I feel like kissing you all, I've done it! I've run 5.2k, ok, not in 30 mins but 42 mins, but I really have done it!!!!! I don't care about the time, anyone will tell you I'm not built for speed and the distance for me was always more important. I am 48 and six months ago I hadn't run since school, but now I can. It hasn't been easy, with injuries along the way, but I've taken my time and done it at my pace.

Anyone who has seen any of my blogs will know that I have lost 13 stone in the last couple of years and now I can run too. I just wanted to say the BIGGEST thank you to all of you here as you have helped me achieve my goal. Please can I have my special badge?

And for all of you just starting on your own journey don't stop because the more you run, the more you believe in yourself.

10k next??????
