I joined Newmachar Running Group in November 2017, I kept seeing the group & wanted to join them instantly.

I was looking for a new challenge as a Sprinter and on my way back to fitness as I sadly was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and 1 year of treatment in 2016.

Thought this would be ideal for getting me back to fitness. Well it certainly did that!

I instantly fell in love with the group, I loved the sessions, people and leaders.

From joining the group I was asked to be a leader in January 2018, I was honoured to become a leader. I love being a leader seeing where the group has came from is amazing to be part of. I enjoy the social aspect of the group, as the group are like minded people. Full of characters and inspiring runners motivates me to be the best leader I can be.

From a very young age, when asked what I want to be when I grew up “I want to be a runner” I would tell them. 

So that’s what I do. Run run run! I love the speed, the freedom!
