Losing 5 stone certainly makes running easier!
Having just completed the Great Eastern Run (aka the Peterborough Half Marathon), I have looked back at what I looked like in 2015 when trying to run. It wasn’t pretty but I got out there and did it. It would have been very easy to not get up extra early before work and stay under a warm duvet but that was not going to get me fit or less fat. I know how hard it can be to get started and to just turn up with other runners – real runners as I used to refer to them – but if we just flipping do it, and keep doing it, we too become real runners.
