As I sit on the eve of my first triathlon of 2019 I am reflecting on the start of taking up this crazy sport. In my last blog post Why I started running I said that I had intended to take up triathlon many years previously, but fell in love with running and 10 years later […]
Why I started running
I have been a runner for over 15 years now. But what got me started and why do I run?
Many people who meet me think that I have always been a runner, but I actually started from zero.
