I started C25K in September 2008, running in a pair of cheap trainers. After the first week I did some damage to my foot and had to stop. So for my birthday at the end of October I asked for some new running shoes. And my sister also gave me some proper running tops, and I started again once my foot was better. The day I finished it I was so high!!

My first race was a 10K in May 2009. Since then I have done 2 organised 5Ks and another 10K, and I regularly run 3 or 4 miles 3 times a week.

I found at last week I had got through the ballot for the 2011 London Marathon, so I am now in pre-training for that after a lazy summer, running-wise. I am scared but thrilled and excited!

Running is the most amazing exercise - it tones so much more than just your legs. I was about half way through the C25K when I found my stomach muscles were emerging and my legs are transformed - they look so much better.
Overall goal

"Look at these people who run marathons. What makes them different to you?...
They have the same bones and muscles as you, the same sinews and organs...
you can do anything you want to, be anything you want to.
The only thing stopping you is you!
