I have just finished my week 9 run 3 and actually felt quite emotional to hear Laura say goodbye. I have only just sent my first blog (pre-run) and now here I am.I have never run before (or done anything vaguely active) but after reaching the age of 53 and having lost four stones (at that point) I felt really motivated to do something. Apart from the great benefits of running (or as my husband calls it shuffling) it is wonderful to go out walking with my husband without lagging behind. Week 4 was a killer for me but I can't tell you how great it feels now. I shan't give up now and I'm looking forward to Race for Life in July. Good luck to everyone. Off to buy some running shorts to celebrate.
