Testimonial Fay December 2021

Running was never my thing.  I love exercising outdoors with a kettle bell, a slam ball and lengths at the lido.  However, I decided to scratch that itch a few years ago when a neighbour told me he had felt the same until he had discovered the Greenwich Runners 0-5K course.  On day one, Ellie and her team immediately put everyone at their ease and I was reassured to see such a mix of abilities and ages, shapes and sizes but all with the same goal – to see if they COULD run.  Each week was fun.  I actually wanted to run. On the penultimate week, I ran with someone at a similar pace to me and we encouraged each other all the way. The feeling of running 5K without stopping that day was so incredible and I think of it often.  Its not far, by many runners standards, but for me, it was a Himalayan peak.  It meant that I COULD now run 5K and that opened up a whole world of possibilities.
