Hi everyone. I've not been active on this site for a while and am completely new to the Bridge to 10k community. I graduated from the C25K a while back and let's just say my running has ebbed and flowed since then I signed up for the Great North Run last year but suffered a stress fracture (third metatarsal) in April and wasn't really recovered until September so had to duck out of Newcastle. I'm now back in training for this year and feeling very proud of going out this morning intending to do 5k, then pushing on through to 7.4k in 48 minutes - and that included charging around the local park trying to catch my running partner (my dog Ellie, pictured) who didn't seem to want to follow our chosen route!! I like reading about everyone else's trials and tribulations with this running thing and it'd be great to hear from anyone else who's doing a HM for the first time? Think I'll leave Ellie at home that day!
