does anyone exercise by running in central-ish Birmingham?

I would love to be able to run a marathon but have never honestly taken cardio seriously my entire life hence I ask for any and all advice

I'm trying to lose weight to avoid inevitable type 2 diabetes later on and so I've set myself the goal of a marathon. I would be lifting 3x minimum a week if it's relevant

thanks

Look for a local running club, you don't have to be a massively high standard to join a running club, as many think.

Also look for a run england group, these are insured groups and taken by a group leader who will carry the LIRF or CIRF running qualification.

Parkruns although only 5k as opposed to 42k (for a marathon) are a good place to start.
Birmingham and the surrounding areas have tons of parkruns.

download endomondo that app will show you lots of local routes and you can schedule training with a goal in mind.

i run at cannon hill park every saturday with the park run event. average is about 600 people from kidds to oaps. do the couch-2-5k challenge. (run for 1min then walk for 90secs then repeat for 30mins) loads of free apps out there. good luck

joining up with parkrun is probably the best way to start.

Run ten miles a week for a few months, by then you'll be well out of Birmingham and be happier for it.
