Hello all,

I've been reading the forum for a couple of weeks, and have posted a few times, but it's taken me until this evening to work out that this is the place to introduce myself...

I've been running for about 18 months. I started with 3 others from work last year and we did the Carlisle half last September, but recently it's just been me getting out so I've joined a club for a bit of company.

The best bits of the last 18 months have been (i) the first time I managed to run a whole 5 miles (that was actually the biggest thrill :-) and (ii) completing the Belfast marathon. The worst bit was a dreadful friction massage a couple of months ago for achilles tendonitis. Aagghh!

Anyway, I've come to look forward to checking in here when I get back from work - it's great to have access to all your running experience and enthusiasm over the net in the evenings. Hope to say hello to some of you at a race some day :-)

Check out the events forum - BK has suggested a few races for early next year where we can meet up, and also a few pre-Christmas ones too.

I think we need to set up a thread for forum addicts! Could prove popular!

Hello again, and many thanks to all for the warm welcome :)

Barkles - I'd noticed there were some bears and other scary creatures around... I'm hoping I'll be safe if I just hide down here for a while :)

Thanks also for the tip on the events forum: I'll nip over there and see if any of the events people are thinking of doing are anywhere near me.

Hmm... wonder whether I can get to the forum from work? Uh-oh.... :)
