And now wanting more...

I've finished my 8 weeks of training with Up&Running and ran my 5km on Monday. This is the longest distance I've ever run at one time.

My time was: 35 minutes and 31 seconds.

Very pleased with that! Especially given the weather. I know lots of the country had terrible storms and snow; we escaped that (in Northland), but it did hail while I was running. Which makes me some sort of properly tough athlete.

And in a move that has surprised even me, I've now signed up to do Up&Running's 10km course in September!

I can't sing the praises of these courses enough. I never imagined I would be running these distances, let alone enjoying it.

Gonna miss the boards now it is over!

Yay!!! We'll be doing the 10k course together!!! Oh, and I'm super amazed you ran in hail. I had a storm and rain, but I'm not sure how I would have reacted to hail. Congrats!!!
