Mr Speaker

As some of you know I’ve got a lot out of the c25k program both physically and at times mentally and am totally sold on it and in fact have owned up to now being a runaholic

So far I have been able to encourage a few other people to take it up and get off the couch and want to do more

Well today I took my 1st booking as an after dinner speaker

Puffin Billys c25k journey and the road beyond, any monies I make from this will go towards my chosen charity along with sponsorship from my upcoming half marathon

As there's over 40,000 of us on C25K Forum, I'm thinking your first booking is at the Albert Hall. Please tell me I don't have to buy mine through Ticketmaster...

Well done - what an inspirational chap you are!

What a great thing to do RM! Aren't you the kindest.... You'll certainly be a big inspiration. We need to see the transcript, especially if it's a funny one! Good luck.

Think it will change a bit dependent on who I'm talking to as some might not like to hear that in the early days I was even sucking in oxygen through my arse to get enough into my lungs lol

You could do with one of those whisk-off suits (like James Bond) with all your colourful gear underneath.... or maybe you should give part of your talk while running round the room??!! 😀

I feel that I have gained so much from this and the c25k program and support was responsible for me getting here
