A message to those of you just starting out, stick with this and you won't regret it.
It's hard when you start and you wonder how on Earth this is going to work. But it really does. Back on February 14th this year I decided things had to change and a runner was born. It didn't matter that I could only run a minute at a time, but I started to run. I was doing it for me, no one else, and although it was bloody hard work, it did get easier.
On Sunday I take part in my first Half Marathon!
That may not be your goal, it might be to lose weight, get fitter, be more healthy, get out with the family, it matters not. What matters is that you're doing it. You'll have runs where you hate every step, you'll have some where you feel amazing. But the important thing is your trying and that you got off that sofa.
Congratulations, you are now a runner, 😊
