I’ve been here a while so i thought i’d better say hello

So I’ve been enjoying daily updates from you all since around November 2017, when I started C25K. I’ve watched you all progress though 10k, and onto Half / full marathon. It’s been great as your progress has matched my own, and I’ve found a lot of the stories inspirational.

I’m a 46 year old ex 20 a day smoker, and I’m now addicted to running! From C25K in November last year, I have my first half marathon in September, and hoping to complete it in 2 hours. After that, who knows where my journey will lead, but I’ll be here reading about everyone else’s journeys, which gives me inspiration and drive to continue on my own.

Not sure why I suddenly felt the need to say hello, or if I will again, but hi everyone!

Hello and welcome! 👋 You have a very similar running timeline to me, and a similar target to me too! September is going to be a fun month, huh 😀 Which half are you doing? I will add it to the calendar if you like!

Hi, I’m running the Northampton Half Marathon, September 9th. First one so thought I’d keep it local. Really looking forward to it, haven’t even done a park run yet so will be first time running with others.
