I'm 19 and I've been running since summer 2005, it started as just something to keep me fit but i'm a competitive sort of person so i started taking it more seriously. Firstly i timed my training runs through Epping Forest to see how fast i could do it, then i started entering 10Ks and Half-Marathons in 2006 to test myself against other people. I enjoyed it a lot and i ran the London Marathon in 2007 for Sense the deafblind charity, but since then i've had a lot of trouble with knee injuries and have only recently got back into running seriously. I have a 10k personal best of 38.51seconds which i set in september, i have a 5k personal best of 20.20 seconds which i ran for University of Central Lancashire athletics team and for Half-Marathon my best is 1:29:58.
