"I could barely run for 30 seconds and couldn't believe I was actually running for 6 minutes, 10 minutes, 20 minutes without stopping!
The night I ran my first 5k was in awful weather but it was one of the best days of my life.
I've now run in Park Runs, 10k events and Half Marathons all with friends and family.
This experience has absolutely changed my life."
