I am a newbie, so I think I'll introduce myself I go by the name of N and I am 22 years old. I've always wanted to become a runner and thought 2013 should be the year to take the plunge.
I have also always been overweight, but in the last year I have lost over three stones and am finally happy with my weight. I'm running so I can become FIT and HEALTHY, more than to lose the weight really - but I'm getting married towards the end of February so am hoping to lose those last few pounds. Yes, I realise it's nine week course, but like I said I want to become healthy. The wedding is just an extra motivator, not the be all end all Hopefully I'll progress onto 10k within the first half of the year.
This community feels very welcoming and supportive, so I feel like blogging about my run here will help me focus and keep my on track.
Thanks for reading!
Oh, and my first run is tomorrow - cannot wait!
