I began running in 2013. I had never really run before in my life. I wasn’t the athletic kid in school, I was the band kid. My husband (the tall guy) told me that he really wanted to run to get into shape, so, wanting to be supportive (and get into shape as well), I told him I would run with him. We began running on our own and I could only go a block or two before I had to stop and catch my breath. Great support I was! We joined BAF and little by little I was able to run further without having to stop and before long I ran a mile! I have since ran 9 half marathons, various 5k and 10k, and 2 sprint triathlons. I am so glad to be able to return to the support I received starting out in blue group!
