Here it is: it's you! (Or rather, 69,847 of you, and still growing by 1000 a week.)
This is what the typical runnersworld.co.uk member is like - it's a picture drawn from the profile pages that almost exactly half of you fill in.
And if this doesn't make you feel less alone, then nothing will! Are you a beginner? Then it's time you met the other 18,508 (or 26.5%) of members who are too. A 10K runner? Then squeeze onto the start line along with the other 20,695 members who rate it as their favourite distance... (35.7% of racers). And surely you haven't been injured in the last 12 months? Never fear: you can swap recovery tips with a whopping 39,113 fellow hobblers (56%!)
