How is success measured in running?
Speed? Length of the run? Weight loss? No of Facebook friends?
There is a majority of us who start running who can just about make it to the bottom of the street
If week two they can beat this that is a success, right?
Success stories dont have to always be in miles, it can be running five mins non-stop or the first time you run up the hill to St Mary`s church or Brookview drive.
In the short existence of Running Keyworth we have had some really good stories
* Sort of a graduation run where a number of us participated in the nearby "Wymeswold Waddle" a five mile hilly road race on May bank holiday. Not only a cracking day out but we all got a quality technical T-shirt also, the bling always helps!
* Few of the Ladies did the popular "Race for life" 5k raising money for charity as well
* Another nearby race saw one lady do the "Stilton stumble 10k" at Cropwell Bishop in absolutely pouring rain but raising lots of money for Alzheimers society
* Two of our runners went to North Notts to complete the "Worksop Halloween Half Marathon" , lovely route through Clumber Park
* Our first Marathon runner didnt do things by half when she did the multi-terrain "Spires and Steeples Marathon" from Lincoln to Sleaford, weather again a bit mixed!
* Our September 2019 batch of C25K graduates saw maybe 12 weeks in one lady do her first 10k race at Holme Pierrepont
* Four Ladies did the Thoresby half Marathon with two following up the next week by doing the Leicestershire 10k
* We have helped several members who experienced secondary mental health care benefit hugely from starting and continuing ruining but the supportive environment the activity brings
