“My fitness wasn’t that great before starting the beginners running club sessions, although I had been walking a lot as I was training for a sponsored event.
I started run club with Zoe in September 2016 as I saw it as an ideal opportunity to get back into running – and as it was a beginners class I thought it would be a perfect way to start again without feeling the pressure of running with ‘proper’ runners!
I was mainly attracted to the club because it was starting an all new session aimed specifically for total beginners. The fact that its local to me, just a few minutes from my house also helped!
My running has improved massively, from walk/run at the start to now running 6km – and I’m loving it!
My advice to anyone thinking of starting running is to just give it a go! You have nothing to lose. Its a lovely, friendly and supportive club. You probably will feel nervous initially but that’s natural with anything new.
Just try it!”
