Unsporty Women Can Run


I’m 50! It was my 50th birthday on Thursday 27 November. Today is Monday and the celebrations keep going on!

Thursday 27 November

About mawil1

Hi my name is julie and I took up running at the age of 46! Hence 'mawil' Middle Aged Woman In Lycra. I did it at first because someone asked me to do a charity run with them. I couldn't run at all, but pride wouldn't let me be seen to be unable to run so I started a walk run programme.
