Hi, my name’s Lou. I started running at the age of 13, when I joined Hertford & Ware Athletics Club. I got completely hooked and trained 5 times a week for 3 years. All these years later, after raising my 3 boys and 4 stone overweight, I started trying to run again and in 2009 ran my first 10k on my 35th birthday. I tried but couldn’t seem to get my love for running back, as it was too difficult being so overweight. Fast forward to the London Marathon Expo in 2016 and a rather indulgent purchase of a Zerorunner and within weeks I’d lost weight and could run outside again. Since then I’ve completed The Great North Run 3 times and have done 5 half marathons this year. Social media is a great way to keep motivated. I follow a lot of runners, e.: Susie Chan, that post even their bad runs and that always makes me feel more confident in my next run – anyone can have a bad day! I’ve found my love for running again and use it as my ‘me time’. Life always seems better after a run.
