From primary school until my mid 30s I played netball and absolutely loved it, however a change in my personal circumstances meant that I could no longer commit to training and matches, so I decided to call it a day. The following few years saw my fitness plummet, I gained weight and my mental health declined. I decided I wanted to get fit before I turned 40 and I saw an advert for the Orchard Eagles beginners’ course in 2019. After successfully completing beginners in the July, I joined the club and immediately signed up to do the Tees 10K and Redcar 10K in the September, and I have continued running ever since completing many races from 5k to half marathon.
