Nice forum.

Brief potted history:

started smoking at age 12
stopped smoking at age 39

played football on occasions within that period.

Started running in 2001 overweight at 13 stone 12 lbs average booze consumption 1 pint per month or less- previously would have rather waited 3 weeks for a bus than run 50 yards to catch it.....dropped to natural weight of 12 stone 4lbs.

Completed first 10k in under an hour and felt inspired .....

personal tragedy ( death of baby ).. stopped running...bad habits

years passed, food and booze( average consumption 7 pints per day)..... weight 15 stone 10 lbs.

2008 started running again : Booze consumtion - 1 pint per day, 40 miles per week running, average pace 12:46 per mile.

Place in GNR through ballot.

and there you have me !

Handle me with care. :embarrassed:

Welcome Barnsley Chop... what a great first post! I don't think I've ever learnt so much about someone in such a short space of time! lol!

Best of luck with the GNR... i'm sure people will be happy to offer their advice wherever you request it :)

Welcome to the forum!

Great first post and look forward to reading your other posts. Good luck with the GNR, some people have a hobbie....we have an addiction :)

Once you have the running bug its hard to shift it and the GNR will keep you aiming for something higher :)
