Training has to start somewhere, so why not with a blog.
Others may have thought that a trip to get a new pair of trainers would be more appropriate but in these days of mass communication, and with a want to keep track of my progress, a blog it is.
I will be 50 this year, and was born a matter of days before Neil and his friend Buzz took the original small-step.
Ok they did have a huge team of people behind them, to help them achieve their goal, but my own team seems to be gathering some pace.
My colleagues, who are still offering the increased level of office banter, have started to offer some tips.
After 24 years of helping others to achieve their running goals - it is now my time.
