I graduated in the summer and was trying to be inspired to keep going, when a friend asked me to take her through the C25K. Yesterday we did our W9R3 run together in the pouring rain, getting admiring smiles from people passing (slowly) in cars. Slow and steady but my 51 year old friend (who like me hasn't run for 20 years) finally made it! This programme is so fantastic - anyone can do it and come out of the other end feeling fitter, happier, proud and on the move. Congratulations to the people who made it up. My friend didn't like the idea of running alone or listening to someone speaking in her ear, so I just ran with her and told her what to do next. I feel so proud of her and me! Happy Christmas to all of you wonderful people who have this year got off your couches and put one foot in front of the other in a 'light jog'! You are brilliant!!
