Christina Macdonald took up running 20 years ago to lose weight and attract a bloke. It worked, but her relationship with running lasted a lot longer. A keen gym user since the 1990s, Christina was the editor of Women's Fitness magazine for three years, before leaving the title in 2009 to launch Women's Running magazine. She now works as a freelance health and fitness writer, as well as a personal trainer. She has completed ten half-marathons and two marathons to date, along with numerous 5-km and 10-km races. She runs for health, sanity and, admittedly, a bit of vanity. She believes that anyone who is healthy can run, whatever their age, size or fitness level.
