Running is part of me. I started running when I was 27, just before I joined the Army. Never very fast but always keen, I would run almost daily when able ( barring injury, pregnancy, war zones, the usual stuff) but my times varied depending on my weight. Now 45 I completed my first marathon last year in Edinburgh. The burning question when I crossed the line was when can I do another? Also, what had taken me so long? I loved it. It took me 430hrs to stagger over the finishing line but I remembered to raise my arms (courtesy of RW) and cry .
Why you should train me
I am good at taking orders (ex Army) but can think for myself and am an eternal optimist. I may not be fast, or young but I will commit 100%.
