body weight exercises.
running
hill-walking for hours on end
the above carrying a load.

don't give up, buy a stopwatch and try to improve your times every time you go out.

You don't need a gym. Period.

What you need is press-ups, sit-ups and running. If you want to, you can use some dumbells. Buy some and search the internet for exercises. There's some good help on youtube.

Just don't overdo yourself! You can easily become fanatic and push your body beond what is healthy! The last thing you want is runnersnkee, cracking shoulders and a knackered back.

Having said that: Get in there and keep on kicking!

Someones will give you 'the' time, but it doesn't mean thats what ur aiming for, your aiming for your VERY BEST each and every time. Don't just do 1 1/2 mile either, I treat my first 1 1/2 mile as a warm up. Go in with a great time and get noticed...
