    oooooooh I’ve always felt like all the C25K stuff was ridiculous, of course I would like a running plan that was made specifically for me! Sign me up!

    I’ve always found running so difficult – there’s so much conflicting advice about it online. I think I’m gonna give this Joggo things a go.

    I quit running years ago because I was sure it would mess up my knees. I’m so glad I found this – I’ve missed running so much! Can’t wait to get back at it again.
