“You’ll never be a runner”

Our 5K EOTN Ambassador Clare has made masses of progress in the last few years since she started running, so she has no time for people who are negative! Her latest blog is here:

“You’ll never be a runner!”…..

“Someone said this to me last week, I admit I’ll never be Mo Farah or Paula Radcliffe, but I’ve done dozens of 5 or 10km races, 61 parkruns, a half marathon and give or take a few dozen duathlons, so in my eyes that makes me a runner.
I’m never sure why people have to be negative or why it always has to be about being the fastest, If you put one foot in front of the other your a runner.
For me it’s always about personal achievement and how it makes me feel, it’s given me so much more than fitness and weight loss, it’s given me friendship’s that I know will last a lifetime.
It’s not about being the fastest, it’s about being you.”
