I've started running for the first time in the past few weeks, and as I'm running on my own this site is treasure trove of useful information. Also think it will help with my motivation too. Thanks everyone for all the posts!
Not a marathon away at all Barry, just 23.2 miles
Keep at it though, you'll be surprised how quickly you improve and build up the miles - I'm sure many of the new members on here will tell you how not that long ago they were running 2 miles at a time and are now racing at various distances
