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. Have run the challenge every time since!
I now try and run most days, and want to have a huge 2015 now I am more or less recovered from my February 2014 car accident.
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 5x50.org for details.
