Carrying a few extra pounds so gave running a go. Shifted the excess weight, got hooked & was pointed in the direction of a Lliswerry training session. Have gone from strength to strength since running for the club & made some great friends too.

As a supplement to football training when I was a young lad. Started running for the sake of running quite recently. It gets you hooked!!

Don't think because its a running club you have to be an elite athlete. Lliswerry caters for all abilities and encourages everyone. My advice? Keep to tarmac.

How did you start running?: 
Introduced to Cardiff parkrun by a friend and so the story goes. Came to Newport for their first parkrun and never left. Soon afterwards the brothers Grimm (Chris & Nick Davies) convinced me to give a Lliswerry training session a go...and now they can't get rid of me! I have recently (May 16) qualified as a LiRF so if you want any hints or tips on getting into running or what Lliswerry can do for you, just ask.
Any message to newcomers?: 
Have fun, it is the most important aspect.

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>
