|Age or Running Category:||33|
|How long have you been running?||On and off for about 10 years – mostly off!
I hated running when I was younger and I used to skive cross country runs or track sessions at school.
|Why do you run?||I love the outdoors and running is good for my mood and general fitness.|
|Describe your favourite run:||Anything outside with hills and nice countryside!|
|Do you take part in races? If so what distance/terrain?||Racing is not really my thing, although I do like to have one or two challenges lined up to give me the incentive to get out and run.|
|What is your greatest running achievement?||Completing the Exmoor Stagger in October 2016. I wasn’t sure I’d be capable of getting round the very hilly 16 mile course but I surprised myself (and wasn’t last)!|
|How long have you been a member of Cheddar Running Club?||Since July 2016|
|Why did you join Cheddar Running Club?||I wanted to push myself and meet some new people. Before I joined the club I only ever ran at one speed and had never run more than a few miles. I still don’t run fast, but it is fun to exercise as a group and I’ve met a lovely bunch of people!|
|How has Cheddar Running Club helped you and your running?||When I come regularly I really notice the difference in my fitness and endurance.|
|What would you say to anyone thinking of joining the club?||Just come along! I put it off for a while thinking I wouldn’t be fit enough or fast enough to do a club track session but everyone was really encouraging and it really doesn’t matter how good a runner you are.|
