Sorry for a bit of a sideways post.
Went down to cheer on a friend in the last mile or so of our local half marathon, just at the end of our road. First time I have really watched any running event and certainly the first time that I've had a proper personal insight into what all these people are achieving.
What an amazing assortment of ages, shapes and sizes! So inspiring. Not saying I'm going to take part, I'll get to 5k first but it really opened my eyes to the fact that anyone, truly anyone, can achieve what they train and focus for.
There were oldies ahead, beside and behind young'uns, there were hefty folk ahead, beside and behind slimmer folk etc.etc.
Thoroughly recommend anyone who is self-doubting and still not feeling 'they are a runner' to go and see a mass of runners!
The only difference is they have trained for the distance and they are taking part... actually... that's just like each of us at each stage of c25k... which means there is no difference!
Have a happy day everyone x
