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.

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.

Any message to newcomers?: 
<p>Put aside any doubts you have about your size,shape ,speed. If you have started running you are a runner. Join a club, especially one as friendly as Lliswerry Runners, and you will make good friends, your running will seem easier and your performance will improve naturally.</p>

How did you start running?: 
<p>The company I worked for was helping to raise money for Kidney Wales and asked me if I&#39;d like to run for the company on a team in the Cardiff 10k.</p>
Any message to newcomers?: 
<p>I still remember thinking a kilometer was a long way when I started running. We all start slow. So don&#39;t worry about it. Just stick to it, and don&#39;t do too much too fast. One day you&#39;ll suprise yourself, and when you least expect it, someone will call you a runner :-)</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>

Road
How did you start running?: 
<p>I have always run, as I played football since I was a school boy, so I was always running as part of training. I started taking it seriously when I entered my first marathon in 2010, My times were OK, but when I started to train with Lliswerry, with their structured sessions and training plans, I became quicker and got more out of my running and haven&#39;t looked back since.</p>
Any message to newcomers?: 
<p>Lliswerry Runners didn&#39;t get the nickname &#39;The friendliest running club&#39; by chance! Whether you&#39;re running 12 min/m or 5 min/m,the help, advice and encouragement you will get from both the coaches and other runners is second to none.</p>
