Hi First Timers,
Nice to meet you all. Congratulations to you all for getting to where you are. You must be buzzing. Now the work begins Hopefully I’ll stay in this forum - it’s up to you guys to keep us here interested for the next week or so before we move onto the winner threads. Good luck to you all - there are some tough forumites here who need pleasing
@charles henderson: Welcome. Thanks for posting your bio. That’s a greta job you do. I thought about becoming a paramedic once - but never went along that route. You guys to a great job. I was like you - wishing that I’d found running earlier in life. It has changed me. Good luck to you. My only advice to you would be to keep confident - but manage your expectations (wait until you meet Victor for advice on managing this stuff.)
I agree with tinyrunner85 - not all first timers get it wrong. Some are blighted by injury! Ahem.
@Ant McNeill: Great to read your bio mate. Great stuff and again similar to my story so I can relate to you. I’d hit a 38” waist!!! M&S trainers? NO matter - a run is a run is a run.
@Sean Prichard: How about a bit more bio Sean before the forumites realise you’ve not said much Welcome. Tell us about what kit you use….. your life… you belong to us for the next week or so…. I see you mention the Cardiff Half - are you Welsh? You ran Swansea 10k as well? So you have to be local - this could benefit you with my vote.
@Harriet Burrows2: Number 2? Is there another Harriet Burrows on the forum? Tell us a bit more about yourself Harriet.
Message to you all - I’m a kit geek. I love the kit, the trainers, the technologies etc - tell me what you are all running in and wearing. Do yo uhave a brand? Yes it would be easy to say ASICS all the way - but I wasn’t wearing Asics when I got through. I wa Ron Hill and Adidas.
