When I set out on C25K I initially looked to join a local C25K group advertised on town FB group. I registered my interest but never got a response from organiser (A man). I did get messages from a couple of women suggesting that I would be out of place as the previous group was mainly young women and mothers and it would probably make me feel uncomfortable and suggested it wasnt for me. Oh ok I thought, I won't bother then. But did feel a little discriminated against for being a "mature" male.
Anyways I persevered on my own, then I found this community. I have to say as someone who needs group motivation to do stuff like this, this has been brilliant.
Lots of "cyber" encouragement and friendship. Still three weeks to go, but a big thank you to this community for getting me this far. 😁
