Carrying a few extra pounds so gave running a go. Shifted the excess weight, got hooked & was pointed in the direction of a Lliswerry training session. Have gone from strength to strength since running for the club & made some great friends too.

How long have you been running?: 
Since April 2012
What's your favourite running surface?: 
Probably Road, with a mix of XC and trail for fun!
How did you start running?: 
I started mainly as a way to de-stress and to get outside in the fresh air for some Me time. Someone told me about parkrun Newport - a FREE timed 5K every week! I was hooked from the first Saturday I turned up there alone! It switched on my competitive side, me against the clock. Running with people encouraged me to stick at it, I would have probably given up running as another fad by the time winter came along - but instead I got the running bug! and the the friendly Lliswerrians introduced me to a whole new world!
Any message to newcomers?: 
The best thing to do is speak to club members at parkrun - there is always a few about every Saturday! Once you know one or two friendly faces, they will take you under their wing. Try a few training sessions during the week - no obligation to join straight away. There is no pressure to do any racing if thats not your thing. Just run for fun! Try a few different clubs before you decide - I went along to two other clubs that are more local to my home and still felt that Lliswerry was the best for me and I have never regretted that decision!

What's your favourite running surface?: 
Road
How did you start running?: 
I decided that sitting behind a desk all day may actually have saved my joints albeit made me unfit but I thought the latter can be reversed but lack of the former cannot! I ran to a lamppost and back then got in my car and drove home, then decided to run to the next lamppost get in my car and drive home etc., etc.
Any message to newcomers?: 
Running is a big an addiction as anything out there, I have so many in-depth hobbies that some of which I have had all my life nearly but running took over all of my hobby/spare time the instant I started achieving much more than my targets.
