How long have you been running?: 
Since April 2012
What's your favourite running surface?: 
Probably Road, with a mix of XC and trail for fun!
How did you start running?: 
I started mainly as a way to de-stress and to get outside in the fresh air for some Me time. Someone told me about parkrun Newport - a FREE timed 5K every week! I was hooked from the first Saturday I turned up there alone! It switched on my competitive side, me against the clock. Running with people encouraged me to stick at it, I would have probably given up running as another fad by the time winter came along - but instead I got the running bug! and the the friendly Lliswerrians introduced me to a whole new world!
Any message to newcomers?: 
The best thing to do is speak to club members at parkrun - there is always a few about every Saturday! Once you know one or two friendly faces, they will take you under their wing. Try a few training sessions during the week - no obligation to join straight away. There is no pressure to do any racing if thats not your thing. Just run for fun! Try a few different clubs before you decide - I went along to two other clubs that are more local to my home and still felt that Lliswerry was the best for me and I have never regretted that decision!

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>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>
