Can't believe I've hit Graduation Week

I'm at Week 9, I can't believe it. When I first decided to do Couch to 5k after being inspired by my friend Annie, I thought this would be like most projects that I started and uh, didn't exactly finish, but NO I actually followed through this time! Yesterday was Week 9 Day 1 and though I did it on the treadmill, (now understand why I have heard it referred to as the dreadmill).
Though it was crazy hot and I turn into a nuclear reactor when I run, I managed to run for 30 minutes straight! That's just crazy! I can remember Week 1 Day 1 and huffing and puffing at 1 minute of running and thinking there was just no way that I would ever be a runner when I was that out of shape. It's so exciting to be on graduation week. It seriously seems like the time has flown by and I am shocked that graduation is Sunday. Wonder what my next program will be? I need a program to keep myself accountable! Oh and I'm so proud of my hubby! He did work straight to church board meeting til 11pm, and then came home and did his run! SO SO proud of him!!

And btw: Does anyone know why one is SO much slower on a treadmill than outside? It's SO weird! Why do I feel like I'm going uncomfortably fast on the treadmill when I manage that fine on the pavement??
