I took up running in April 2016. I wanted to continue improving my fitness and keep my weight down.
A local group aimed at all abilities was ideal. I couldn't get motivated to run on my own. I wanted to try Park Run, but was worried I would be last.
After completing 10 weeks with the Trotters, I had the confidence to do my first Park Run in July 2016. When I joined the group I never thought I would become a run leader. I am keen to help others on similar journeys to mine. The hardest step is getting off the sofa, even when it's cold and wet. In February 2017 I ran Newquay 10k with the right support anything is possible.
