I've just done my first run with Laura and it went OK! It's taken me months to pluck up the courage to make a start, and it's definitely thanks to this community that I've done it - reading all the encouraging posts on here and the advice to go really slowly has helped me take my first step. I was lucky in that my husband came with me - he's just done his first half-marathon but he was really happy to stick to the slow pace and support me. I'll be super nervous the first time I go on my own later this week.
Yikes - can I really do this???
