    I know some of yous on refeed dont venture much to the tfr section so thought i'd double post this get your opinions too:

    You guys are the first to know this so feel privalidged! I havnt told any of my family or friends yet and dont think i will for a while just to see how i am going to get on ... but i have been thinking about this for a couple of months now and have been umming and ahhing whether to or not but ...

    I have decided that next year i AM going to run the plymouth half marathon!! All 13.1 miles of it. My brother has already agreed to train me up in the gym when he is home on his summer leave in August :)

    Something i have always fancied doing and now that i have lost weight i think with lots of hard work at the gym i could do it! Not only will i get fit, ill lose more weight preparing myself and i will be raising money for a cause thats close to me.

    Going to run for the Alzheimers society and i have 314 days to prepare .... am i mad?!!!!!!!!

    Good luck chick and I admire you for doing it. It will definitely help with the weight management too, so added bonus there.

    No you're not mad - you're brilliant!!!! Having something like that to focus on and train for is fantastic!
    My son & his wife ran the London marathon this year and have inspired many people to train to do it next year including my daughter. It's a fantastic way of getting and keeping fit. Your trainer should be able to help you with carb intake etc (that you were asking about earlier)

    Also - if you're training hard - you can eat more ;) :) xx

    It's a great idea and a fabulous cause .... just hope you remember why you're doing it (;) - sorry - no offence meant ;)) xxx

    Summer thats an excellent goal. Now that you have so much weight lost its a great idea to get the exercise working for you. Also more time spent in training or Gym means less time worrying about food. :D

    Good for you Tanya. If you are half as determined with your training as you were with LT, then you will do it easy peasy!
