About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures.

Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

Running like a car

Not a finely tuned sleek, brand spanking new sports car, more like a very old, clapped out Reliant Robin. I’ve not blown a gasket, (yet) or sprung an oil leak, I don’t have a slow puncture, I’ve not run out … Continue reading
