Hi I'm Jackie, nearly 52yrs Young!
I started running in 2014 and used the C25k programme to get me up , out and moving - it worked! I have carried on running and signing up for different distance runs since then which has kept me on track, happy and motivated. I also lost weight and have managed to manintain that.
I joined a run club before finishing the programme but it was far too competitive and fast for my ability although the 6 weeks training induction was a fantastic learning experience - these days I mostly run on my own (sometimes with my son) or unless it's Parkrun.
My goal for this year is to carry on doing what I'm doing be fit and well to race a 10, a half and enter a sprint triathlon ... I like cycling, like running, not so good at swimming! So I volunteered and marshalled at the Duston triathlon last Sunday to give me the oomph and confidence. Now, that's me signed up for September 2016! Two weeks after a local half - oh dear time to start training😳
It would be great to have virtual run buddies / local buddies to support and link up with !
