I've DONE IT! :-)

My goodness.... I have actually completed the program, I am a Graduate!!!! I had to get my head down over the last 2 weeks to get the running in but today I actually finished, Im so elated. I even ran longer than the allotted 30 minutes so that I could complete 5K. Im a slow runner but even still I feel really accomplished. I am so geared up for doing Bridge to 10K now. Thank you so much to all that have encouraged me and commented on my blogs with your pearls of running wisdom, you have helped me enormously. I feel I can truly call myself a runner :-D
