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!

Alex D Cleared to run for further now, I can do 5k max for now! Yippeee! Didn't have a chance to run today, as my Company is doing Wear It Pink Day for Breast Cancer Campaign, and I left home at 7am to get in early, with 106 cupcakes and the decorations to get the place ready! Will run tomorrow morning probably, all the way to the Cathedral and back before I go up to parkrun to help out as usual on a Saturday.
