The title says it all!
For the first time since my teens I have stuck to a way of exercising for more than a couple of weeks and I have (mostly!) loved it.
I couldn't have done it without this forum, so thank you everyone.
And for all those who offered advice on new kit- a quick update: I'm afraid the airtex graduated with me. I haven't made it to the shops, due to a poorly baby, but she's on the mend and I plan an expedition tomorrow so I'll look like a real runner by the time I do my first post grad run.....
