A year ago today – 19th April 2018 – I made what I believe is one of the best decisions of my life – I joined the best running group in my humble opinion – the Danson Runners!
So how did it all came about? Well, by April 2018 I’d been working as a fitness instructor/personal trainer for three months – and I loved and still love my job, but between that, the kids and general life stuff I found I was getting less and less time to focus on my own training and fitness, and doing what I did I do feel it’s important to keep myself fit and healthy – it was then I decided I wanted to get properly get back into my running which had fallen by the wayside.
So I did what every sensible person does and signed up for a 10km – oh you mean people don’t normally do this!?! What had I done!?
In the end, I was exceptionally grateful that I could actually run because a couple of weeks before the event I took a nasty tumble whilst out running which resulted with me unable to run for nearly two weeks!!! That was no fun for anyone, haha! Fortunately, I healed quite quickly and the week before I managed to get in a couple of runs – a few being 10km and above. The enforced rest may have actually been a good thing, not that I like to admit that!
So, I had everything prepared for the run – remembering my headphones this time, as forgot them for my last 10k run event and it wasn’t good!
