I hate doing these things but here goes:

I'm Kerry.
I've not been running for that long really, which is odd considering I've played netball for 10 years!
I guess I just wasnt' too into the whole being totally fit for it.

But this season I've been given the kick I needed. If I get fit I can play for the Superleague team.
Some incentive.

So I've been running for 10 weeks now. Losing 16lbs and going from 15mins for just over a mile to 4 miles in 45mins.

Obviously, more is needed and I look forward to speaking to you all about my progress, your progress and any tips & advice anyone may have!

Ok basically.
Superleague is the top tier of netball in England.
It's where all the internationals play plus a few players from Australia and New Zealand.
Its the pinnacle of the sport if you have no aspirations to play for England!

So if you get in you could potentially be an international some time in the future...and we'll be asking for your signature!!

Well the footie comes before everything else of course. I'll miss my saturdays in front of Sky Sports when I'm (hopefully) playing!

There's 9 teams next season. 2 London based - Hurricanes and Mavericks.
Team Bath.
Loughborough Lightning
Team Northumbria
Northern Thunder
Leeds Carnegie
Celtic Dragons (Cardiff Based)
and Team Scotland.

I hopefully will be one of the ladies wearing the yellow and black of Northern Thunder.

Oh, and it's televised on thursdays! :d
