Happy running! 😀🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️😀


Hello, nice to have you along for a run! You can do this! Just be careful with your 'levels', eat properly and listen to your body. We call it running, but really it's just a nice little jog, it's not a race. Do what you can and have fun.

Thank you for your warm welcome.


Hello Anydboy. Welcome. I’m a few years older than you, an asthmatic post breast cancer. I graduated and am now proud to call myself a runner. You’ll love the C25k plan. Looking forward to seeing your posts. Enjoy.


Welcome to the group - lots of great support and advice here from super-friendly folk who want you to do well.
