I took up running in my 40s having done no sport since my teenage years, I didn’t know there were any options for recreational sport for me as an adult woman and then I got caught up with bringing up my three girls and then combining that with being a full-time student nurse and then full-time nurse.
I have always been inspired by watching adventure and women’s sport.
Since I took up running and later, cycling, I recognise the benefit that partaking in sport brings to me. The sense of well-being both physically and mentally. Running, in particular, is my way of participating in mindfulness.
