Meet the Leaders

What made you join Fitmums? 

I had been running for a few months when my partner had a break from running, to have our second child and she suggested I join Fitmums & Friends so I could pick up some tips and run with others until she was ready to start again.

What was your original goal? 

To run under 10 Minute miles over 5K

What else have you done? 

I have not only succeeded in my goal, I have run a few Half Marathons and Edinburgh Marathon in my first year of running. The support I have had from Fitmums & Friends to achieve this has been fantastic.

What are your plans for next year? 

I am looking forward to offering the same support as a run leader that I have received so far. To get a sub 2-hour half marathon and run another marathon. Oh and plenty of PBs

What would you tell someone who was thinking about joining Fitmums? 

Do it! The hardest part is getting out the door. Once you have done that you will meet some fantastic supportive people. Whether you have never run before or you are a seasoned marathon runner Fitmums & Friends caters for everyone so come for a run with us this week and I’m sure you will get the bug and be back next week.
