Hasta la vista Laura!

Can't quite believe it but I just finished run 3 of week 9!!! I guess that makes me a graduate!!

I would have liked to do a little dance after finishing, like Bxlkl in Brussels, but just had no energy left :-)

I do about 4.25km in the 30 mins so reckon I could do 5k in about 35 minutes, so that's my next challenge... I'll keep posting as and when I make any progress, for now I'm just going to enjoy this amazing feeling of accomplishment!!!!

Hey, does anyone know how I get the badge? And thanks for all the support over these 9 hard weeks :-)

Well done and doesn't it feel good. At the moment you need to contact the "Editor" to get your badge - see his Question of about a week or so ago.

Congratulations! It's no mean feat to get to the end, both physically and mentally and is something that you should be very proud of.

Only 7 runs left and I hope to be joining you...

You're right behind me then, good luck with the rest of the runs!

Thanks! You'll be there before you know it. Good luck with your next run, I've got a feeling it's going to go better than the last one (could it get any worse?!)...

it's an amazing feeling - congratulations! But you might not want to say goodbye completely to laura - the 5k+ podcasts are really good and I can tell they're helping me get faster.

So celebrate - then keep going

Thanks for the recommendation, I'll definitely download the 5k+ podcasts (are they the stepping stones and the other one?? - I've heard lots of comments about them). But I am kind of looking forward to a break from Laura and a few runs with my own music! Then it'll be "Hola Laura" again... I couldn't have done it without her :-)

Thanks a lot! I'm ridiculously proud of myself and of the badge next to my name (I might be posting more now just to see it :-) )

Will definitely be having a few glasses of wine tonight!

A nice large glass of Agua de Valencia, I think! Well done.

Ooh, that's a good idea! I will think of all my fellow C25Kers as I get slowly tipsy :-)

Wow, well done. I can't wait to earn my badge too!

You'll be there before you know it, I found after the dreaded week 5 that time just flew by! Good luck with it!
