Having never run I started doing the couch to 5k on the 1st of January this year, doing my walking and running with Laura and thinking OMG week 9 I'll never make it. Yesterday was the Birmingham half marathon, I crossed the line at 3hours and 30 seconds, just 45minutes after my 18 year old son, if I hadn't stopped at Bournville to shake my Dad's hand and say hello to my Mom I would have (probably) just scraped in under 3. So at your darkest point, when you think you can't do it remember me, from borderline obese to 1/2 Marathon in 10 months. Today I feel tired and achy but am already thinking of next year
