I've been toying with the idea of joining a running club for quite a while now - but I always think myself out of it because I don't feel I'm fit enough (yet!). Has anyone had any experience of joining one as a beginner - and what kind of welcome did you get? (more specifically in the birmingham area?)
At the moment I'm plodding my way through a marathon training schedule for NY on NOV 3rd - but I always seem to be running at the same (slow) pace whether it's 3 miles or 13! I think a bit of work on a track would be good for me but to be honest I'm a little terrified as I don't cut the most athletic figure!
