Wishing you all the best every step of the way! You'll smash it! Catherine is amazing... she started a running group at work... OPD goes running....couch to 5k. .. she has been an amazing coach... about 8 of us in the group who could barely run for 1 minute at the beginning. She has been a constant support of motivation, commitment and encouragement . Three of us have managed a run of "26.2" minutes this morning !!! Go girl .. we're all behind you xxxxxxx
