About

I am Jancanrun, older than I’d like to be. Un-fitter than is wiser to be. Like chocolate, cheese and wine way more than can be considered healthy. My New Year’s resolution for 2018 is to run 2018 kms, to fund raise for Alzheimer’s Research.

This  site is my running life with occasional forays into the uncharted mess of my mind 🙂 . This  running life started when I searched for a programme structure to start me running safely and soundly.

I found and graduated in August 2017 from the NHS Couch to 5K plan, which has been my guide and its amazing support forum Health Unlocked. These two ingredients have become my recipe for running success. To make me run I write about it, to make me write I need to run. Simple. I am lucky enough to run in both London and Italy, and so the stories change depending on environment.

The characters and place names in Italy are fictional, but the people themselves and events are real. I hold them all in great affection and respect, except maybe for the dogs that bark and cause me to leap out of my skin.

If you want to leave a comment, I’d love to hear from you.

And please remember if this Jancanrun, then you can too.
