I don't come on her so apologies for the self indulgent share.
Today I completed the Birmingham half marathon in a very respectible 2hrs 31 mins .
this is a huge achievement for me as I am 4 stone overweight and I have never been very athletic. So hopefully this may help inspire anyone thinking of running. It was pretty much a year ago I started couch to 5k
I also rarely have my photo taken but if I can't look a bit rough after 13.1 miles then when can I? So here I am on the left very proud.

Fantastic, well done you. I remember when you posted about entering it, you should be very proud of yourself.

Thanks ladies. And I had a chest infection 3weeks ago and was on antibiotics and steroids and unable to train for 12 days so incredibly pleased I managed to complete it.

Trayloub and Ferbs you just never know. I would never have thought I would do it but I did, and if I can anyone can.
Thank you all xxx
