How did you start running?: 
<p>Turning 40 and had my girls I thought I would start to get my life back. I couldn&#39;t run up the road without stopping. I was more of a brisk walker. So thought if I signed up for a half marathon I would have to start learning to run. I went from nothing. I joined lliswerry running group. It was the best thing I have done. I have now done 3 half marathons, 5 10ks, Rack Raid. Rose inn relays. I am so proud of what I have achieved. Thank you lliswerry.</p>

2-3 Years
What's your favourite running surface?: 
Anything really - quite like running uphill, no idea why!
How did you start running?: 
<p>Turned 40, wanted to lose weight and gain some level of fitness before the inevitable heart attack arrived. I started jogging around the streets, Park Run came soon after closely followed by joining this club.</p>
Any message to newcomers?: 
<p>1. Join the club, you are already fast enough (guaranteed), its brilliant for beginners and you will improve so much quicker than just jogging by yourself. 2. Don&#39;t try to do too much too soon, listen to your body.</p>

What's your favourite running surface?: 
Trail or road or mountain or anywhere.
How did you start running?: 
I needed to get fitter to complete the National 3 Peaks Challenge. Absolutely hated it when I started....went on to complete Cardiff Half and started parkrun which naturally led to joining the club. This led to marathons and beyond.
Any message to newcomers?: 
Don't use the phrase "I'm not fast enough to join a club" If you want an addiction, this is one of the good ones.
