Thanks to this great community


This is my first post, I felt I needed to say thanks to all of you before 2014 is gone.

I'm 41 years old, female and I started running last July. I complete C25 in nine weeks and I've running since then. Now, I'm running 35/40km a week.

It was an amazing change in my life. I moved to London 18 months ago as a "trailing spouse" and it was really difficult for me, I won 7 kg (1 stone?) in few months and I felt sad and ugly. Running helped me recover my self-esteem and my sense of achievement.

I've been reading your posts and it gave me a feeling of being part of something, thanks again and happy new year!
