Began running in 2006 3-4 times a week. I have completed loads of races (about 15 a year) from 5k to Marathon (3 London, 2 Beachy Head), but was not getting any faster or thinner!

Loving the challenges here too, and enjoying buying smaller clothes and throwing out the big things :)

Next challenge is the 5x50 challenge - please follow@NiftyandAlex on Twitter, the challenge on @5x50challenge and see the website for details.

5K 27:16 (2013)
Half 2:21:59
Marathon 5:32:33
