I am celebrating!!!

I started running to my own music on 14th April this year having started C25K in February.

So I have just completed 26 weeks of running for 30 minutes (and longer) 3 times a week. Not bad for a 63 year old short person, who has always hated running due to a large chest. (hereditary)

During the 26 weeks I have dropped a dress size including 3 inches off my waist, found I actually enjoy running with a decent sports bra on, feel so much better and the best of all - I have given up smoking!!

Here's to C25K. And I have downloaded the next podcasts.
