The 5x50 Challenge is an extraordinary beast.

Before 5x50 it was easy to find an excuse not to run — I've got a busy family life with an erratic work schedule, so there was always something more important to do than exercise. But 5x50 took away all the excuses, and changed my default setting from 'I'm too busy to exercise' to 'when can I fit it in?'

And suddenly exercise became less of a chore and more of a priority in my life.

I've done both Challenges so far (and they are challenges — it's not easy!) but the motivation from the rest of the 5x50 family is fantastic.

And that final run on Day 50? I challenge you to get round it without grinning all the way. Bring on 30th March 2014 — I can't wait!
