I ran 5km (and another 0.5km extra) without stopping for the very first time today!

And who do I have to thank?? Runners' Forum. Without all the inspirational posts on here, and the thought of being able to post this when I got back, I'm not sure I'd have done it yet. So a big thank you to everybody!

It's odd, I really didn't feel like going for a run today (I was going to do 8km but with intervals) so decided to do a shorter one, and make it count. Somehow, it worked!

It may have taken me 38.35 to get round, but for me that's a real achievement so hasn't taken the grin off my face. Neither did the guy who drove up behind me honking his horn - I'm trying to convince myself he was being flattering so as not to destroy said grin...

So yeah, thanks again!

I take it you are a tad pleased with yourself.:d

Well done from me and the time really doesn't matter. Completing the distance is a fantastic achievement.

When's your first race then ?
