I started c25k with Laura back in June2012 and completed my first official 5 k at the end of August in 29 mins and some seconds (have conveniently forgotten the seconds as prefer to focus on the 29 mins!!) I,ve continued running doing an 8 k in October and hope to complete a 10k at the end of January. I cannot imagine not running now. Yes it is still hard at times ,I'm not a natural athlete with a built that is short and definetly roundy yet nothing touches that feeling of going forward under your own steam with wind or rain in your hair, feeling you could run the world.!!
