Happy New Year (nearly my runniversary)


I just wanted to say a Happy New Year to you all!

A couple of days into January will be my runniversary and, like many of us, I'm reviewing my achievements for 2019 and my plans for 2020.

Last year I had a massive hill to climb... hugely unfit and overweight, I'd stopped most of my social activities and was turning into a hermit.

Now I don't recognise that person, and people I've not seen since last Christmas hardly recognise me. I only made a couple of small (but significant) changes to my life, one of which was running. I've had some ups and downs but I'm back to it now and re-gaining my fitness levels very fast (5km in 30:03 this morning isn't bad for someone who has been away for 3 months due to foot issues).

So, for those of you I know, I hope next year brings everything you desire.

And for those of you just starting out, never for a minute doubt that the simple, achievable actions laid out in C25k could change your life. Don't think of your destination... think only of your next step (perhaps quite literally).

Lots of love and trainers.
