Running quite a bit lately. Etc.
Up until about 2012 I was a complete rookie runner that had only ever really run short distances (longest is about 4 miles). I used to be quite good at the long-ish distance runs at school and really loved it. It wasn't until a few years ago I decided to go back to running. It went well at first, but I didn't tackle it in a very sensible fashion and was dogged by injuries. Now I have joined a running club and have taken part in races and distances I never thought I would be doing a few years back.
Now clocked my first eight half marathons and my first full marathon. I don't think I have the 'Marathon Bug' but I am enjoying the 10-13 miles kind of distance.
