25–26 Jan 2025 276 days to go! #RunShow

Leanne Shrive

I’m just someone who used to hate sports and in particular running, and until May 2017 I couldn’t get myself round the block without walking. I’ve completed 2 half marathons since April 2018, I’ve lost count how many 5 and 10k’s, and I’ve just achieved my 50th parkrun. I’ve made so many running friends through races, my local running club (Harborough Athletics) and parkrun – well we can be friends until the last 100m at which point its a competition!!
I started blogging to record my progress and as somewhere to shout about my achievements and also my struggles, we all have them so why do we shy away from them?
I love being part of the running community; encouraging and supporting others and sharing knowledge with those who have been running for much much longer than me, meeting people and learning about their journey’s, its totally inspiring.
