Emma, runner
I've been running for two years. I used to only run 1 or 2 kilometres, but now I run approximately 10. My speed is also improving. In Brighton, I've joined a jogging club. I had never met any of the members before, but now I consider them my friends. When my father was younger, he was a good runner who was quite fit, but he stopped after injuring his knee. In fact, I need to order a new pair of running shoes which will be just a simple pair. I don't believe that the more expensive ones help you run faster!

Mia, skateboarder
Most evenings, I go skating in the park. I know that's a lot, but the park is only a minute or two away from my house, and I usually spend a couple of hours there if my friends are around. My cousin, who is quite talented at skateboarding, occasionally joins us, and he teaches me a few new moves. I'm getting better all the time!

Charlotte, rock climber
My best friend suggested I start rock climbing, and now we both do it. My friend's mother drives us once or twice a month, but I'd like to do it once a week. I had no idea you needed so much equipment when I first started, and it isn't cheap! But I love it. Climbing is something I don't think I'll ever grow tired of doing!
