"Well Mrs O, I'm officially a runner!!! Finished the 8 week program yesterday and I CAN DO IT!!!! I can't believe it. Thanks a million to you being an inspiration, I'm going to be fit n forty now, not fat n forty (in about 7 years time of course). The husband is doing well too, on week 7. He's actually more addicted than me!"
I am absolutely chuffed to bits for Gill and her husband Gareth, as I know how amazing it feels to make the journey from non-runner to runner, to change from an 'I can't!' to an 'I bloody well can!'.
I'm also utterly delighted to have provided a catalyst for Gill and Gareth's transformation into runners - who knew my average little blog would do some good along its average little way?
Now all I need are details, so I'm hoping that Gill and Gareth will respond to my invitation to write a guest blog post about their experience. Let's watch this space with fingers crossed...
Until then, Gill, Gareth - YOU ROCK!
