Maxine after successfully completing a middle distance triathlon


Name: Maxine Bateman
Age or Running Category: 28
How long have you been running? About 5 years
Why do you run? I like the social aspect, the challenging myself part and also I can’t sit still so running is a good way to use my excess energy! Plus I feel I can eat more cake now too.
Describe your favourite run: Any run where I have enjoyed myself, even if at the time it wasn’t fun. Looking back I would smile at most of the runs.
Do you take part in races? If so what distance/terrain? I love to race as I am rubbish at sticking to a training schedule. I race not to win but to have fun and beat myself.
What is your greatest running achievement? My first half marathon in 2010 was incredible and more recently the PB’s at the Weston Prom race series
How long have you been a member of Cheddar Running Club? 1 year – since I moved to the area.
Why did you join Cheddar Running Club?  To keep me running when I moved from Hertfordshire. I joined the club on my 2nd ever day here and it was the best thing I did
How has Cheddar Running Club helped you and your running? This year I have gotten quicker with regular training and it’s given me more friends in the Cheddar area.
What would you say to anyone thinking of joining the club? Come along and say hello – you won’t be able to resist joining once you meet us.
