All you need is suitable trainers (a free what to wear guide will be sent too) Suitable clothing and a route to run!
Make it an adventure, listen to music and most of all take it easy to start with!
Running apps are a great way to record improvement, measure distance and let you know how great you've done! Our suggested app is Strava and can be downloaded from ITunes here:- https://appsto.re/gb/fPnCz.i
Once you have the running bug a great free event is ParkRun a organised 5km event at a park near you held on Saturdays, all the information can be found here:- http://www.parkrun.org.uk
Remember take it slow, walk if needed and take nice deep breaths!
Oh and the only people looking at you are the ones that know how great it is to run and other that want to start running.
If you have any questions let me know and I'll help if I can.
