There are some great newbie threads starting out just now - and I've said hello on a few, but I really want to track my journey from not running at all to completing a marathon at the end of June 2013.
I've been inspired by many people on these forums just lately - but a BIG shout out to Booktrunk! So for purely selfish reasons I'm gonna update this thread with the results of my training and hopefully some of you will be in the boat, and we can compare, commiserate and celebrate together. Those of you who have been there, done it, and got the t-shirt please chip in too!
A bit about me; I turn 30 the week I'm doing the marathon - and I want to do something to mark that, also I'm sick of being unfit, overweight and generally out of shape. I'm thinking of trying for my first child in the summer (I'll have been married a year) and if I don't do this now I don't think I ever will.
I've had a go at running once before, two years ago, I did Race for Life which was 5K but the farthest I ran was about 9 miles, I've done nothing since I've got all the kit so no excuses not to be out doing it!
Wish me luck! lol
