What our runners say :)  

"Here come the Girls link appeared on my FB feed just after I was told I had high cholesterol. Running is tough for me because I suffer with fatigue following 4 years of chemo treatment. Although I am in remission I still struggle with my energy level.

Running has had a positive effect on my fitness and my mood. It's a lovely group of supportive ladies. Thank you"- Jackie

 

"I am really enjoying the running group and I know that without it I would not be doing it - it is lovely to meet up with others and especially to have your encouragement and tips.

Also the fact that it is free is a real big bonus.

I know that in the short space of time that we have been running I have been encouraged to have a go and I have surprised myself that I have managed to actually do more than walk"- Sue
