Hi all! I discovered HealthUnlocked after i ran the St. George's 10 mile road race on the Isle of Wight. I'm working towards my second half-marathon in late September, so I hope you have room for me.
I first began ran after I lost a lot of weight and turned 40, and ran for a couple of years, until I had my third child. I starting running again in June 2013, and mostly focused on 10Ks until my first half-marathon last year. Training went well, but I didn't do as well as I'd hoped on race day, and finished in 2:37. I've run pretty constantly since then, even running in spiked shoes on the ice last winter. I'm still a fairly slow runner, but am participating in longer races - I did an 18K in May, a 14.5 K in June, and the St. George's in July. I'm feeling pretty optimistic about improving my time in September.
I hope you have room for someone who mostly thinks in metric!
