Final run done this morning. Never run in my life before and when I started this expected I'd give up quite early on - but surprisingly have loved it. Found this forum at around week 6 - the same time I realised I had no hope of getting anywhere near 5K. Finding that I wasn't alone is what kept me going - so thank you to everyone.
I may not be the age group locog were aiming for but I consider this achievement my own olympic legacy.
Now I can tel my mates - hadn't done before thinking they'd just laugh at unathletic me. Still have a goal of getting to 5k - in about a year probably.
