In 2019 my wife dared me to join a couch to 5k group as I lived for my work and didn't do anything for myself. She tagged me onto a WB Fitness post about a running course and it all went from there. Having completed their 10 week course and ultimately my first 5k Parkrun, I've since gone on to complete numerous races and challenges including a Marathon and a 50k Ultra Marathon. I still run with WB Fitness and have made many friends who I run with outside of the group training and social sessions too.
