Hi , I'm karl 46 , ive been a keen runner for the past few years and have used races 10ks, half marathons , OCRs as my motivation , covid has stopped all that and has also stopped my motivation .
I want to find friends who can get me motivated to lose the 2 stone I've put on in the last year and get back to a healthy life style again.
Please add me or drop me a message if you think you can help 😊

    I spot a fellow Mudder :) I have a love/hate relationship with running...hate the thought, love being out when I go. I'm more of a 5/10k than a half marathon, I did 20k once and once only..... :)

    Im just kickstarting my workouts after them tailing off back in September. I did the worlds Slowest 5k today!!! If I can get back out there, you can!!!

    I have been doing a lot of virtual runs since September. I do them on my elliptical, but it keeps me moving. Some I purchased online, but I made a few racing bibs just to have fun.

    I've done a Tough mudder, and about a dozen other ocrs by other names... Nothing better than mud and obstacles!

    I hurt my ankle last fall, so I'm not sure if that means I'm out completely, but I'm still pushing with lifting and boxing. Sometimes you have to let determination step in and fill the gap til motivation comes back home.

    Done tough mudders, Spartans , ratraces and many others , I love them , especially if you've got a team ! Can't wait for them to start up again before I'm too old lol

    I have enjoyed going as a team for the camaraderie... But found I was held back in terms of endurance... So I also love going solo to see how much of my own butt I can kick. We have Mud Hero (done 6 or 7) and Dirty Donkey (done 4).

    Hopefully we're safe to run this summer!
