Earlier this year I completed a UK Leadership in Running Fitness Course
with the aim of starting up a complete beginners running group.
(Supported by my Running Club).
Running is something I try to do twice a week.
At one time it was about the mileage covered, but now it is about going for a run,
coming back refreshed & with a smile on my face.
Running is the one thing that also changed my body, mind and fitness level - after years of going to a gym with little if any results.
You can go any time you feel like, for as long as you like, even if it's a quick ten minutes.
It's free (apart from a decent pair of trainers) & if you stick out the first couple of weeks it does get easier!
So, I started my group along with a guy named Alex & we were amazed when on the first night eight people turned up!
They all had more or less the same aims - get fitter, lose weight, breath more easily.....
we now have twenty on the register & last night was week 8.
I can't tell you how proud I am of the individuals who make up the group,
I LOVE running the group and seeing how improvements are made each week,
personal goals realised.
Support & encouragement given to each other.
Most importantly we have FUN! :-)
They make me smile. They have no idea how much THEY motivate ME!
