My goal is to transition from Parkrun to half marathon distance over the next 6 months, with the Sheffield Half Marathon as my big event. I've planned ahead and entered some great events in between, to keep my motivation up as the weather gets colder over winter.

I've been using the Fitbit Charge 2 for a couple of months now, wearing it for both running and daily step-counting. The best features for me are the heart rate monitor, the easy-to-use functionality and the overall look/feel of the watch on my wrist. If you're looking for a mid-range fitness watch that won't break the bank, the Charge 2 is an ideal choice.

I started running in January 2017 as part of my New Year's Resolution to make a difference to my fitness levels this year, with the long-term aim of pushing the boundaries on what my body can achieve. I wanted to know if I could translate the years of running around playing football into controlled distances of running, such as 5km, 10km and beyond. Parkrun was the obvious gateway into running for me, and I've been addicted ever since, continuously striving for a better PB and enjoying each run.
