I never cease to be amazed by the amount of incredibly fit supporters we have out there in the Midlands taking part in a whole range of running events. This summer alone we have people from our region who have either ran or are in training for Wolverhampton Marathon, Birmingham Half Marathon, Lake Vyrynwy Half Marathon, The Great Midlands Fun Run, Wyre Forest Half Marathon and many more. We even have supporters running marathons in Germany and the U.S.A.!
If, like me, you have always thought that running is just not for you, why not take a look at this new training programme I have just discovered? It's called Couch to 5k and is a guide for beginners who are starting from scratch. The programme "has helped thoudands of new runners get off the couch and onto the roads, running 3 miles in just two months".
So there you go, it's never too late t take up running, and there are certainly plenty of events to choose from that are listed on sites such as Runners World. Why not get involved?!
