Did it, eventually!

Never thought I'd be a runner, hated cross country at school, but here I am fully graduated. It took me a while,what with twisted ankles( proper running trainers are a must) and summer holidays. The weather's been appalling, though I was often thankful for the cooling rain and winds. Laura is my new best friend and I'm super chuffed. Good luck to all who are just starting. Keep going, you can do it to everybody else. I'm 16 stone, 37 years old, an ex smoker (social really) who likes a drink. If I can do it anyone can.

  • Congatulations Becky. Well done on graduating. :)

  • Thanks for the good wishes. Fingers crossed I keep it up.

  • Well done Becky - a real achievement & an inspiration to us following in your wake

  • I'm sure you'll graduate too. Just stuck with it. Laura's running tips are all helpful though at first running , listening to Laura and breathing deaply whilst counting my footsteps almost made me fall over.

  • Congratulations Becky, thats brilliant! Now go get your shiny green badge from John and wear with pride!!

  • I love a badge! Who's John? And how do I get my shiny green badge. This is my one and only blog I have obviously been missing more than I realised.

  • Oh dear. Did something wrong.... Posted instead of replying to SBG356. I do have a shiny green badge though and no idea how it got there.

  • Congrats on the badge - arrived as if by magic!! John is the admin guy on the blog site who you normally have to contact but seems he beat you to it!! Well done again x

  • Yay, well done you! I love reading graduation blogs - everyone's stories are so different. Congratulations, and look at that beautiful badge!

  • Thank you. Everyone is so chuffed for me, it's lovely.
