How this running thing started. August 1st 2006

I'll start with the facts - as they were back in August 2006.

5' 5"
12st 10lb
So, a minimum of 2 stone overweight. Only exercise done in the last year - dog walking (maybe 5miles a week) and surfing (about once a month at most).

My friends started running, I was supportive but thought them foolish. One day I went to the gym and thought, "How hard can this running malarky be?" Answer: 1mile = 15min; and it wasn't really running - more 10second sprints with some dodgy power-walking. I could barely breathe afterwards and I thought I might pass out. I was too fat and far too unfit. This is what I did to change the situation.
