Hello, my name is Ellen and this is my sports and recreation blog. For most of my life, I have been overweight so I avoided playing sports at school. I hated any form of physical activity. I was feeling pretty sad until one day I made friends with a guy called Harry. Harry was a real sports guy and he encouraged me to start getting active. It was difficult at first, but as the weeks went by, I started to actually enjoy running around on the playing field. Since then, I have lost weight and I feel much happier. I decided to start this blog to help others get involved in sports.
