Inspired by my sister after seeing her take part in parkruns after the tragic death of her husband last year, I decided to give it a go as a self help tool for improving my mental health. In September 2018, I joined Earlswood Running Club's Couch to 5K course and enjoyed it tremendously, so much so that I completed the course 3 times! One year on, armed with newfound confidence and an improvement in my mental health, I want to raise support for those who are in need physically, mentally and emotionally. A 10K run may not seem a great achievement to many but to me it will go down as one of my prouder moments in life for more reasons than I have space to explain on this page. Im not asking you to support me but rather to see it as supporting those who society tend to (and sometimes prefer to) forget. Thank you to all my Earlswood Running Club family for making this 10K run possible but HUGE thanks to the most incredibly inspiring leader and training coach Kate Holah, founder of Earlswood Running Club!
