Hi one and all!!

At the request of several members here on the DFW board, I have pleasure in starting the Debt Free Wannabe Running Club!The idea being that we all have goals we wish to reach, some being financial, others being weight loss, getting fit etc.

So heres the place to get the motivation to do it!!:j

Firstly, Let us know what your goal is, Ie running a half marathon, being able to run for half hour without stopping, doing 30 sit ups etc then we can share progress reports, any training hints and tips and generally get a kick up the proverbial to get off the sofa and go do it!!!:rotfl:
(goodness knows i need a boot right now so could be accused of being slightly self indulgent with the thread!:T )


If there are enough people we could even do an evening or a sunday run.

We all know Gyms are/can be Mega expensive so here's the cheaper option and you'll get loads of support from us all.

So who's in?!:beer:

Have fun
P

    I'd like to offer my support. I can cheer from the (virtual) pavement as you go past?
    But running and me don't get on. I run in an embarrassing way, like the most embarrassing way a mum can do on parents day in junior school. :D

    I'd love to join but my fitness goal is for mountain biking, not running :(
    I couldn't run if my life depended on it so I take my hat off to those of you who are taking part and I'll be here for moral support in abundance :D
