My name is Sean, I'm 24 and live in a village in Northamptonshire. I'm about 6ft 1" and weigh between 17 and 18 stone.
My previous experience with running has mainly been on treadmills in gyms. At my fittest I was doing 10k runs in an hour.
Last year, I entered to run The British 10k but never actually got round to it and, to be honest, I've been pretty static since last summer.
I think my next step is to take up outdoor running. Mainly because I won't have to pay gym membership and I love the fresh air.
Having done some research, I think I'm going to buy some Asics Gel Fuji Attack trainers; I have a 7 mile reservoir circuit near me which will be my main training area.
Anyway, I'm just here to introduce myself and ask for some tips. Any advice on essential equipment to get me started?
Hopefully soon I will enter a race and finish it!
Thanks, Sean Wilkinson
