Getting started, 2007 - I started running again after picking up a flyer at my local gym that read "running club". I turned to my friend who was with me at the time and said, "I've never been able to run, I'm going to join". The first run was massive. I was nearly sick on three occasions, I was at the back of the pack and I had to walk a few times because I had painful stitches and blisters. But at the end of the run, the coach informed me that I had covered 9km. Not bad for someone who had barely ran before.
