I saw a similar post to this so stole the idea!! It may seem a little strange to some to be doing this but I thought I’d introduce myself.
WHO AM I?
Hi.. My name is Jim. I ran my first marathon back in 2008. But not seriously.. again I ran in 2010 and 2011 in fancy dress but sgain didn't seriously run.
I'm 35 years old and live in Suffolk, married to Laura with one child Arthur.
WHY DO I RUN?
Although I was fairly active growing up I didnt really do anythin competitively, it wasn't until I was in my late 20s I was playing Sunday league football.
After I had been playing football a fair bit, I felt I was getting too old for that so decided to try and stay fit I would run again. But.. I like a challenge.. I decided to see if I could still run a marathon and went out early one Sunday morning and ran 26 miles..
Since then I have set myself a target 100 marathons before I am 50... I would also like to earn my six stars, but I know this is extremely difficult particularly for a part time runner!
WHY AM | ON INSTAGRAM?
