…is running!!

I never in a million years did I think I could run. I'm comfortably running 2 miles 3x a week, and a friend has persuaded me to train for a 1/2 marathon end of Sept. In November 2013 I couldn't run for a minute!

It's such a great stress relief - I finish my run ready to take on the world. I run with a smile too.

My body is changing too - in 4 months, and with careful eating, I'm down 22lbs!! Yay.

Just wanted to share… can bring us unexpected happiness x

Congratulations! Did you do the Couch to 5K program or did you 'just do it'?

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.
