STATUS Building a base for Prague marathon in May. Thinking about Parkruns too
I started running Summer 2008. Didn't run before that and also wasn't doing any other regular exercise.
I entered a Cancer Research 10k with seven weeks to go as a challenge to myself to get fit. Not only did it go well, I really enjoyed the training and the race itself so I kept at it.
When the weather is good I love meandering runs enjoying the outdoors; I live by a canal so that's a regular. When it's less good I enjoy the feeling I get afterwards and I like mixing up with games too, mostly the ones here: WSW, Conquercise, Fetchpoint.
2019 was the best year yet. Discovered parkrun tourism (I was already a fan of running my local parkrun), ran more miles than ever, got a half marathon PB (probably my favourite distance) and did a first marathon in nearly a decade!
2020 is mostly about a couple of Spring marathons. And the games. Might have a go at getting some PBs at some point...

Describe your ideal run, ride or swim.
Longish run somewhere pleasantly semi-rural, canal path or wooded footpaths or similar, with plenty of time and a small backpack with snacks. Maybe an audiobook to listen to.
