Hi, I'm Jo, a Run Leader in Arnold and along with Lyndsey I lead the Arnold Arrows.
I started my running journey during 2014 whilst trying to lose weight at Weight Watchers, my husband suggested I join him and our sons at our local parkrun. Having always been someone who had an allergy to exercise, I agreed somewhat reluctantly and spent a few months walk, walk/jogging at the back with the dog. In January 2015 I embarked on a beginners course with NWR to learn how to do it properly!
Since then I appear to have caught the running bug! I completed my first half marathon in September 2016, have become a run leader and helped establish Gedling parkrun with my Event Director husband!
I am now thoroughly enjoying taking new ladies on the journey I started 2 years ago. I look forward to meeting some of you on one of our runs!
