Alex D @alex45674

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! Started running every day to train for the 5x50 Challenge (5x50.co.uk) in Sept-Oct 2012 and loved it! Completed the challenge and lost 9lb in the process. New 5x50 Challenge starts next March 2015 - join us! I am now hooked on running and love it! Loving the challenges here too, and enjoying buying smaller clothes and throwing out the big things :)

Next challenge is the Folkestone Half Marathon, running in aid of Breast Cancer - to donate please text DEDP95 £amount to 70070 or go to https://www.justgiving.com/AlexPinkHalf

I am hoping to beat my 2009 PB of 2:21:59 set at that course - bring it on!


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

Thanks! I do like doing them, and they make my legs feel loads better after a run for sure. I hadn't realised I had logged that many on TS to be honest :) woohoo!

Fab, we were in front for so long but there are some serious cyclists on the boys team and now we are falling behind. My thinking is: we just need more girls on our team :))

Absolutely! I love a good walk and a good run, so I will start adding those. Planning a walk after work tonight and running tomorrow, and loads of walking on Friday :)

I did not know that, I thought if your @ name was typed in you got a message regardless of where that was done.  Good to know!  The event is getting huge now, well done to Kevin for organising!  Roll on Sunday :)
