<p>On a family holiday in north Wales my wife was off running every morning with our dog, when she'd get back to the tent she would allways say "I wish you could come running with us", about a month later I agreed to try. I have not looked back.</p>
Any message to newcomers?: 
<p>It's much better running with Friends than on your own and Lliswerry Runners really are a great bunch of dudes and dudettes they(we)have a great weekly structure that will help any runner, weather your into running fast or slow the group system,routes and training plans really do aid in impoving running fittness for all abilities.</p>

Woke up one morning and had an urge to go for a run. Downloaded the couch to 5K app on my phone and off I went. Got hooked straight away and haven't looked back. Once I built up to the 5K I looked on the Internet for a local running club and joined Lliswerry Runners in Oct 2013

How did you start running?: 
<p>I had a bit of a health scare a few years ago and ended up in hospital. I was overweight, eating the wrong things and spending too long doing nothing! So I decided I had to change. bit by bit, I started running and I&#39;ll always remember how painful that first ever ParkRun was... but I stuck with it and look where I&#39;ve got to!</p>
Any message to newcomers?: 
<p>Try it... Don&#39;t worry about whether you&#39;re &#39;good&#39; or not.. everyone started the same way with one foot in front of the other...Who knows how far you will end up going... and there&#39;s no one more supportive than a Lliswerry Runner beside you!</p>
