Running in my very first race April 2011

I started running in 2011, aged 47, to raise funds for the charity where I was a trustee.  I had promised I would run a leg in the Robin Hood Marathon relay.  Once I had said I would do it I had to carry it through and by the time I’d done the training for the event seven months later I was hooked on running.  That five mile relay leg felt like a huge achievement and it was great fun! I enjoy running and racing and that motivates me to continue.  I celebrated my 50th birthday in 2013 with the feeling that running was making me younger as I am fitter now than I was at 40.
