“I’m not a runner! I’m never running when I can walk! I’ve even walked two marathons through the night in my bra..
Then in December 2017 our best friend died in tragic circumstances. At his funeral the celebrant said as a tribute to David set yourself a challenge. So I did! In January 2018 with my dog Jenson as my training buddy and lots of encouragement and support from my husband Clive I started the Couch to 5K. On 13 May 2018, with Clive and our daughter, I completed the Gatwick Half Marathon. This was just the start of my running journey, I have since completed another half marathon, several 10K’s and prior to lockdown 67 Parkruns. I run with Clive, I run with my friend and I run with my Parkrun family. Why do I still run? It makes me feel good, body and soul. I can run with my husband and friends. But mainly because I Can.”
