Location: Oblong, IL, USA
Finished: February 24, 2012
Finished! 9 weeks ago, it was impossible to envision myself being this successful and able! I can't believe that I just ran for 30 minutes straight, and I enjoyed it! I might be finished with this program, but there is no way that I'm done running! I can't wait to see what kind of milestones I have yet to achieve, and I hope one day to even run something as ridiculously far as a marathon! Coach Clair has taught me that NOTHING is impossible when it comes to running, so I've just gotta keep going, and remember that no matter how long my journey may be, it all starts with 1 step...

Comments: Inspired by Charlie Brooker, I started the app on the 2nd January. After a couple of set-backs due to a nasty cold and general laziness, I have finished today! Hurrah! I have been running longer than the 30mins and today reached 5.7km. Really pleased with myself and not really sure where to go from here though. Don't think I can run without the lovely wee voice in my ear pushing me on. I may give the Zombies, Run! app a go for fun but a 5 to 10k app would be excellent, pleeeease!

Comments: Wow! Week 1 I almost quit because of the excruciating pain in my legs. I didn't give in and nine weeks later, I'm done! I'm also crazy enough to think I'm going to start training to complete a full marathon. This app has put that dream in my mind. Thanks Get Running!

Comments: Brilliant running programme. I've managed to get through it without 1 injury - and that is saying something with my knees
Treated myself to a new pair of Brooks trainers as reward - now just waiting for the 5-10k Get Running .....PLEASE
In the meantime I will be running with zombiesrun app - great for getting the speed up at least!

I am so proud of myself for completing this programme. I think it's the first exercise programme I have ever fully completed and no cheating! Thank you to the designers of this programme - I recommend it to everyone that wants to start getting active.
I've completed the programme on a treadmill, so the next step for me is to get a bit further in the 30 mins and then take to the tarmac & go public with my jogging and hopefully by the end of the summer do an official 5K run.
Well done to everyone who has completed this programme - it was so worth it
