Hi - have only just started looking at the forum and wanted to join in some threads but they seem so established I thought I would start my own for all those looking from the sidelines !!!!
So come on lets start a new thread for all those people just starting running and needing to lose some weight !!
I will start by telling you a little about myself -
Am a married mum of two kids - turn 30 next year and have been running since May this year, I gave up smoking and brought a treadmill to get fit/lose weight ! Am now loving running and go out as much as I can (normally 4/5 times a week)
I am a member of weight watchers but only use it really to get weighed every week
I ran my first 10k at the end of sept at Bowood House for cancer research - Really enjoyed it - time was 1hr and 13 mins ! Not bad for someone who couldnt run down the road 6 months ago !!
Am now looking towards my next race - want to do some 5ks and more 10ks, then think about a 1/2 marathon but need to lose weight first - about 2 stone !!
Anybody got any 5k or 10k they can recommend in the herts area or the wilts area ?
