Wait for me!!! I am coming to the party too!!! I've finished! (who'd have thought?)

The Hall household is going to be very crowded tonight... I hope there is room for one more!

Thank you to Laura, to the NHS and to this wonderful community - what a ride!

One last rainy and wonderful run and that is it - 9 weeks (or so) of running completed! Busy getting ready for our Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend, I will be humming Laura's tunes for one last time as I bake my pumpkin pies .... (I must say Laura- I've really had enough of you and Julie)

  • Well done. What's your next goal?

  • Thank you! hmmm... good question. I would like to / need to loose weight. I am one of those people who have lost inches but not pounds.

    I look forward to running 10K... this seems very far away right now. I think my first step will be to continue with running 5k 3x a week until it becomes an easy run and then start the push again. I would love a 5-to10K programme!

    What did you do after you graduated?

  • I only graduated last Saturday, and haven't run since due to cold type bug. But like you i intend to carry on with 3x30min runs per week for a while. Maybe aim for 10k next year.

  • Poor you, I hope you feel better soon! I look forward to hearing of your progress.

  • Well done, the jouney is just beginning...( i understand the Laura comment, i ditched her - sorry Laura - at week 7 :-) )

  • Thank you Phil72! I am really looking forward to the journey, it has been fun so far! It will be fun to move on to other music - I kept with Laura the whole time but now its over!

  • Congratulations, Anna!!! There is always room for another graduate at our house!!! The bubbly is chilled and we will have a glass ready for you!!

    Enjoy your Canadian Thanksgiving!! If memory serves me correctly, this weekend you will be celebrating one more thing...Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Anna, Happy Birthday to you!!

    What a wonderful way to celebrate...with a shiny new "Graduate" badge!!

    Congratulations again, Well done!!

  • Thank you Steve! I have really felt the support of you and Gayle which helped through the final weeks. Bubbly it is!, there are a lot of graduates this week!

    You are right, tomorrow is my birthday - thank you for the bday wishes! I am hoping for running gear/gift certificates (or I might just treat myself!)

    I look forward to hearing about your next adventures in running!

  • WOOT-WOOT!!!!!!!! So thrilled for you Anna! What a great and memorable weekend for you to do your Grad run!!!! Canadian Thanksgiving, Grad run and Birthday!!! YIPPPEEE!!!! Wine is chilling and party horns are out! Run that sweaty little body on over and we will start the party! Bring one of your pumpkin pies along, i love pumpkin! :-)

  • Thanks Gayle, I have a big grin on my face. I have to say that since reading your blog I have had "if you're happy and you know it" stuck in my head.

    I am definitely ready to celebrate! So much to be thankful for! As I said to Steve, your support is one of them! Thank you!

    Don't worry, I always make extra pumpkin pie (did apple crisp this year too- just in case).

  • Well done Anna thats brilliant!! Enjoy your celebrations this weekend and bathe in the glory of graduating!! Sue x

  • Thanks Sue! I will enjoy, I will take a break from running until Tuesday (at which time I will atone for my overindulgences!)

    Good luck with Week 7, you're almost there!

  • 'Congratulations, and celebrations...............' Enjoy the party!

  • Thanks "see" you there!
