Today myself and Sam2.0, along with our other colleague, Kensington, were at the Caerphilly 10K. We were promoting Cardiff10K and supporting our runners.
It was great to be able to talk to everyone and also gather Top Tips from new runners, and more experience, seasoned athletes. The good news is everyone has a tip about what works for them and most of the things I am already doing have worked for others in the past.
It was also lovely to see some familiar faces including Tash from FrontRunner, who advised me to take things slowly and build up my distance and speed gradually. FrontRunner are the team that deliver a number of races in South Wales, including the Swansea Half, which Tash helpfully indicated I could have a place for....I declined for 2019, but who knows what next year will bring.

Also saw BBC Weather presenter and runner, Sue Charles, who was on hand to start todays race. Sue takes part in lots of races so I took the opportunity to ask her for a tip.
Sue recommended being able to get into a swimming pool after a long run. No swimming required just to be able to relax aching legs.
It's been a long morning on my feet, my training resumes tomorrow another week of the 2 mile distance before we build up to 5k.
Thank you to everyone who have been in touch after reading my blog.
I will be looking for training partners, if anyone wants to come for a run, as long as you can keep up with me.
After 24 years of helping others to achieve their running goals - it is now my time.
