Qualified running group leader under Uk Athletics
I joined Stoke F.I.T in August 2012 as a complete non runner. I joined with a friend and was only going to stay a couple of weeks while she settled in, I can remember feeling so scared thinking everybody else would think I was slowing them down but the support and encouragement from not only the leaders but the other runners was amazing. I can honestly say I now love running and the results that I have achieved from starting to run have had a massive impact on my life.
I’m a positive person who believes that you can achieve anything you set your mind to, hard work will always pay off. If you put in 100% effort, you’ll get out 100% results!! As a leader I would like to not only offer support and encouragement but also make every run fun, why would you stick at something you’re not enjoying?? Stoke F.I.T has always had a no pressure approach and that is something I firmly believe in too. Seeing people improve, grow in confidence as a runner and achieve what they thought was impossible is the best part of being a leader, and that is down to the hard work you put in.
