I always loved sports as a child, swimming, tennis, hockey but then when I went to university I didn’t maintain these and my lifestyle became quite unhealthy, although I enjoyed every minute of embracing the student ways out the other side I wanted to get fit and healthy again. Not having much money I decided running was the best option and through the summer holidays I went from being able to manage just 2km to running 12km with ease. Every since I have continued to love the freedom and mind space running gives me and have used it to stay fit during my time travelling the world; New Zealand, Australia, Greece, Spain to name a few places. I joined a running club when I could and entered into local 10km races. I also challenged myself to a half marathon and exceeded an expected time I had, driven by the atmosphere and adrenaline of it all.I love that running can take so many different forms, solo or in groups, races, long runs, short runs, interval training… it’s impossible to get board and with a pair of trainers available it can be done anywhere anytime no money or schedule needed. I would encourage anyone to give it a go, I know it’s not for everyone but the variety and community these days it’s hard not to find something to suit you and people to share the experience with.
