Wow, what an amazing run and achievement, having only started running late May and just done my first 10K this is completely beyond dreams haha
well done 😬👍👏👏👏
Thank you. You will get wherever you want to go my friend. I started in Nov 19 so am still relatively new. Congratulations on your 10k 👏👏👏
Congratulations to you Instructor57 on completing your first 10K, remember to tell the administrators that you have ran your first 10K, then on the B210K forum you will see the words Graduate10 next to your username 😊 🏃🏾 🎓.
Wow, what a distance GTFC and a cracking time. I'm so pleased for you and you should be so proud of yourself.
Have a restful rest of the weekend
Wow!! That's awesome GTFC 👏👏👏 Also what an impressive pace! Well done 🥳🥳💪💪🏃♂️🏃♂️
Congratulations on completing your first MARATHON, well done, I hope you enjoyed your marathon run today, I am sure you did, go now and celebrate your wonderful achievement, remember to tell the administrators that you have ran your first marathon, after that you will see the words MARATHON next to your username, excellent that you got a sub 5 hour time as well.
What a fantastic achievement! Well done you, you should be very proud of yourself. 👏👏👏🥳🏅
Thank you. I really am. Running has given me so much 😊
You joined here after me. Is that how long you've been running for? I'm still looking for my first half marathon. 😕
I started C25k in Nov 19 and have run week in week out 3x a week mostly (occasionally 4) apart from injury. I love it and as I've gone on I've felt much more suited for long distance. Your HM will come if that is what you'd like. We are all different though so never compare. Your achievements are as good as mine and everybody else's. Every time you go out, you win 😊
Thanks for the kind words. I'm being silly I know, especially after advising others not to compare. I'm looking forward to some cool, damp autumn running. It seems to suit me more than the summer.
Congratulations once again. 🏅👏
Wow, amazing, how absolutely fantastic, that’s some great achievement you have there, enjoy your afterglow and resting up. Have you planned any celebrations, hope so 🎉 🏃♂️👏👏👏👏👏🏃♂️🎉
💥💥💥🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🤩🤩🤩!! You did it congratulations GTFC!! What an achievement!! You’re an absolute star!! 🥂 🍾 🥳🥳🥳
Well done you!! 👌🏽🤗❤️
I am doing a dance of joy for you in my lounge 😁. Yessssssssssss and a yeeeeeeeeeeeeha! from Wobble 💪💪💪💪💪💪👊🏅
Ever so well done man 😃👌
Take the rest of the day off 👍
Take your legs a little trot tomorrow if you feel you need to. My legs get the jitters if I don’t 🙂
Well you’re going to be first over the line of the virtual VLM posse! Very well done! I did 32k (20 miles) today, and that’ll be it until THE day.....very, very happy at how it went......and I’m still in one piece!
Keep well now and take good care of yourself....ready for the big one!
Wow Madge, that's an awesome achievement! Well done you 🥇 I went out for 22 but did feel good so kept on. Rest up today and taper and you'll be as ready as you can be for the big day! Awesome achievement for you. I'm really chuffed for you 😊
Wow! Amazing run Madge - well done!💪🙂
Great stuff Madge💪😃👍🏃♀️🌪💪
Job done 👊✊🙂
Thanks wobble.....I must admit I’m liking the idea of hula hoops, by 30k I’d had enough of jelly babies/gels.....needed something proper savoury.....🥪🥯
I don’t eat them In the normal course of events. Just for the closing stages of the 20 mile or the marathon itself, when they are a restorative. Just the small bag of the plain variety
I have a bag ready now for my next one in a few weeks 😊
Wow! Very well done. You should be very proud.
Brilliant. In a great time too, much faster than you had suggested. Have a badge to wear with pride
Wow, well done! 👏👏what an amazing achievement.
That’s fantastic! And a great time too 😍
Coach Tasha says don’t run for a few days now! 😶🤣
Find yourself a medal online 👌🏽
That is awesome, huge well done from us
Thank you both. Really appreciate it!
Wow...Congratulations that's fantastic!!!
So pleased for you...what a star 🌟acheivement.
Recover well and bask in your awesomeness!😎👌🌻xxx
Congratulations GTFC, epic run!! Not only generous with your support for fellow VRB’s but showing the way too. 👍👍👏👏🥂🥇
Wooooo hooooo GTFC 👏👏🥳 🥇. Huge well done and even bigger congratulations. I knew it was coming but you got there so soon. Just brilliant.
Wowsers GTFC, absolutely fantastic, and I’m not worthy to be in your virtual presence! Amazing achievement. How are you feeling at the moment? Bet your legs know all about it! 🏃
Massive congratulations! 👏👏👏👏👏
Thank you so much. I actually feel great. I've been averaging 38 mile weeks lately and knew I had it in my legs today and the more distance I've covered the comfier I feel after, so no aches luckily. I was very thirsty after though 😂😂😂
Wow, that’s fantastic GTFC, well done!🙂👏👏👏👏
Brilliant run. Well done.
Just brilliant GTFC! A great time as well! Time to rest and relax now
Wowsers! Many congratulations to you and bloody well done. It’s a mahoosive achievement and you should feel terribly proud 💪
I hope you’ve celebrated like you should and the legs are ok 👏🙂
Wow, wow, wow 😮 Incredible achievement, I am in awe! Hope you are celebrating and resting your legs 😃
All I can say is totally amazing and I’m in great awe of your wonderful achievement. Really well done ⭐️⭐️👏👏👍
Woweee!😀👏👏👏🏃🏽♂️👏👏💪 This is just amazing GTFC and I’m so pleased for you!🙂 You most definitely put the miles in and are so supportive to the rest of us on here...what a fab achievement and huge inspiration! Hope you feel ok now (and tomorrow!) and get a bit of a Sunday lie-in in the morning!🙂
GTFC That has got to be the ultimate inspirational post on Health Unlocked- absolutely sensational achievement!! 🎉🎉🎉🎉🏅🏅🏅Very very very well done indeed!!!!! When you started C25k did you ever think you might one day achieve this? It’s just so brilliant I am smiling thinking how amazing you must be feeling!!!! 👏👏👏😀😀😀
How lovely of you to say 🤗 It was all the runs and moments leading up to it rather than the run itself. I felt ready and so it was just about being out that long. You're right, when I started, 10k seemed a long way for me but I really enjoyed going out and never lacked motivation. It was good to do it by myself and I do feel chuffed. Thank you for your words x
Wow GTFC! That’s incredible! An amazing achievement in such a short time 👏👏👏👏
Congratulations! What an amazing achievement. I could barely run for 3 minutes when I started running. Now on Week 7 and ran for 25 minutes. A marathon just seems other worldly. Well done!!
Wow!! Huge congratulations! 👏🤩🏅👏 You really have come a long way in a short amount of time. I am so pleased for you! Impressive time too and one of your familiar scenic routes by the look of it. GTFC, you are a true inspiration to others and an amazing role model to your son.
Bask in this wonderful moment...🍷🛁☀️
Well done! Didn’t you do 18 miles last week? That’s a big step up. I’m still around 18 miles so still need to find some for the VLM.
Thank you. I did 15, 17, 20 and then this one over recent weeks. I wanted to go for it last week but thought I'd better wait. Yesterday was a 22 mile one before taper but I felt ready 😊
18 miles is ace though! Well done you because it's a lot of time on your feet. Good luck and keep going 🎽
Thanks. Just been ordering gels, chews and drinks as think I just need something more to keep the energy topped up 🙏
Wow GTFC, You Are On Fire! 🔥
What an amazing achievement, you must be so very proud of yourself 😊
Well done dude...now go celebrate 🍷🎉, unless you're too tired, in which case nap 😴
Wow! Congrats GTFC!!! What a huge accomplishmemt👏👏👏
Thank you!! 😁 I trust you are ok and keeping well?
I am. Thank you for asking. I took a bit of a break from running this summer but am starting back at it again. I'm finding the love again.
Well done an amazing achievement 🏅🏅🏅🏆🏆🏆👏👏👏
Frantic woo-hooing going on here! Congratulations on a fabulous run. You are always so encouraging to us all and show us that we can achieve great things. You have certainly led by example today! 🏅🏃♂️💪🤩👍🌟
Bask in your success! You have made me even more determined to tackle my HM in the next week or so.
Congratulations - and I think you can count it even more of an achievement doing it solo without crowds to cheer you on. 🥳🥳🥳
After my runs this morning I am beginning to believe I can - it felt like things are falling into place. I may have roped a couple of people to sign up to a local virtual HM in early October but might try to run solo just to prove to myself before then. Exciting times - did I just say that?!?
And a pretty good time too!
So when's your 50k ultra planned?

What an amazing achievement!! 🤩
Wow! Well done you! Amazing to have completed it and a fantastic time! 😁
Well Done GTFC 👍👍👍👍👍👍
Marathons are very special achievements 🏅🏅🏅🏅
Congratulations GTFC- you have achieved so much with your running as well as spurring people on on the forum. You so deserve a shiny new badge!
Well done!!! Well done indeed!!!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Oh wow!🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩 That’s amazing! And so inspiring of what progress can be achieved, when we keep on keeping on! 👍🏼👏🏾🥂 🎉🎉 🥳 🎈 🎊 🏅
Huge well done. You have worked very hard for that. A fantastic achievement. I hope you're recovered now 👏👏
Wow!!! What a great time for a first marathon - I could only dream of a time like that. I can’t run a 5k at that pace!!!
Go u you oh!!! 🎉🎊🎂💐
WOW, what a fantastic achievement GTFC. You really are an inspiration and I am in awe of your awesomeness. I hope you enjoyed a few very well earned glasses of red wine afterwards.
Just wow 👍💪👏👏👏🥂🍾🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🏅🥳🥳🏃♂️👏👏👏
Thank you so very much! 26 medals! I really appreciate it 😊 I did have some wine a few days after thank you. Really felt good during and after the run. I didn't find a wall or anything, I just kept going at a steady pace. I was just reading your profile. Maybe Forest Run Beginner needs to be Forest Runner. You are doing so incredibly well 👏👏👏
I saw this post a few days ago, but hadn't joined this forum, so couldn't respond. Brilliant news!
I’m just seeing this now! What’s to be said?!? A marathon. You’re just awesome. Incredible physical and mental strength. And you’re so supportive in this forum. Sitting here, glum with the news of new restrictions but this has cheered me up no end!!!
Thank you so much! I really appreciate it. I really enjoyed that day and that run. I hope you are ok?
