OK so I've managed to complete w8 reasonably well. I even ran in the pouring rain for the first time but....when will I feel like a real runner? I potter along thinking I'm doing OK then some Lycra clad gazelles come bounding past making me feel that really I'm in the "all the gear, no idea" camp. I still feel a bit embarrassed when there's actually anyone to see me puffing my way along the towpath! So when does it happen? When do I become "a runner" rather than a pretender? Just wondering!
