This here, be my first post

Hi, and as my profile says, I am Doug, from Perth, Western Australia. This community has already been a wonderful support to my new to running journey as I lurked in the shadows

I figured I better contribute because by sharing my experiences, maybe someone can benefits in the future, that is usually how these things work.

I kinda need some extra support as well.

Hi Doug from Perth, Hey, did you loose your roof or fence in the last couple of days with the lovely weather in our part of the world?

Did you do the HBF run for a reason last Sunday?

This forum here is brilliant. I have learned a lot and it made my life easier to hear all those advices and encouragements.

Hi there

Welcome to this brilliant huge family! Lurking is okay, but being out here with all the rest of us is better!

Sharing our journey helps others, as you say, and there is a wealth of support here. Folks who will encourage, sympathise, offer advice, and even give you a shove if necessary! ( That will be me! )

Looking forward to your posts! :)
