  • 5ks: One

Having watched Emma train and reach her own personal goals, I decided to step off the treadmill and venture outside with her. I started running with Emma a while back. The plan for me was to run the 5K Race for Life in Epsom, which I did with my 11 year old daughter on 29th June 2014.

Emma is great fun to run with, and the perfect running companion if you are a complete beginner or if you have perhaps run in the past and want to start up again. Just running with someone of a similar mindset will really spur you on. Emma will always be there to help and encourage you especially at times where you may be finding it hard going. Get out there with Emma and have some fun.

Before you know it you’ll be signing up for your first 5K run.
