I joined Baswich Run4Fun's very first Couch to 5k group in September 2018, little did I know what a massive change to my life it would make. By Christmas I had completed my first Parkrun with the group and loved the support, friendship and positive mental and general health benefits the group brought me. So followed a year of running challenges the hi-light of which was completing the Great North Run with my oldest buddy in September 19. I volunteered as Mental Health Champion and in October 2019 I achieved the LIRF qualification to become a volunteer Run Leader taking my first group out in January 2020.
