I stsrted the couch 25k at the end of 2015 for several reasons, to lose bit weight, get fitter and healthier but also to give me a structure to my week as recently semi retired. I felt like many people when I graduated how did that happen to someone who hated exercise with horrid memories of muddy school cross country sessions! I now run three times a week 5k's at pace of 31ish I've lost a stone and feel better and toned, oh and dropped a dress size. I'm now doing a gradual longer run on Sunday's aiming for 10k goal, signed up for a rave for life in June. I love reading the posts and have received so much help and encouragement which is wonderful. So why then do I feel a fraud thinking at age 55 yrs I can't really be taken seriously as a runner? Perhaps because I've taken it up a bit late in life! Get over it I hear you shout.... And I love it now can't imagine my life with no running in it so I will keep on running get my head down and run for those hills!,
