When I was at school, I played some football
and rugby. I hated rugby because I couldn't
catch the ball, but I enjoyed football. I
started out being a terrible player and nobody
wanted me to be on their team. But I started
to improve slowly and, after a few years,
the other kids in the school accepted me as
a player, not a fantastic one, but one who
wouldn't do anything stupid.
I was at university, I stopped playing sports
altogether. I was working too hard, started
eating too much, and, worst of all, I started
smoking. By the time I was thirty, I was
overweight and unfit.
one day, I was sitting in the park, smoking
a cigarette. I was watching these guys running.
They looked slim, fit and healthy, and some
of them were much older than me. When I
got home, I looked in the bathroom mirror
and, well, I suppose I just didn't like
what I saw. At that moment, I decided to
stop smoking and change my life. I went
to a sports shop, bought myself a pair of
running shoes, shorts and a sweatshirt.
That evening I went running around the park
- for ten minutes! Physically, I felt terrible.
Everything was hurting: my legs, my chest.
But inside, I did feel good about it.
next evening, I went again. I still only
did ten minutes, but I didn't feel as I
bad as I did the day before. Within a week,
I was running for fifteen minutes, then
twenty, and after three weeks I ran for
thirty minutes without stopping. Quite soon,
I was running longer distances and my speed
and strength were improving all the time.
After six months, I was a runner!
was five years ago. I now run eight kilometres
six times a week and love it. My proudest
moment was last year, when I ran my first
marathon and finished in under three hours.
I'm fitter now than I've ever been, and
am so glad that I went to sit in the park
that day five years ago.
