I came to running later in life. I was 33 when we adopted our son. I was 3 stone overweight and really unfit. He was running circles around me. I knew I had to change for him.
I started running, early in the morning, or late at night, so no one would see me. As the weight came off and I got faster my confidence grew and I joined a running club.
Since then I have run 12 marathons, PB 3.19, 2 ultras and countless other races.
Running has changed my life, it’s helped me regain a sense of identity, it’s introduced me to some of my greatest friends and it makes me feel capable.
