Club Member of the Month
This month’s Club Member of the Month is Kate who joined us as a non-runner in 2018.
It is fair to say that unlike Verity, who was last month’s CMOTM, Kate is very quiet. However, we have seen her flourish in her time with us and she has done this firstly, by being consistent with her running. She made her way through our None To Run programme graduating with a parkrun time of 40.58 in June 2018.
From there, she got involved in our strength, intervals and hill training sessions and kept working to not only improve her parkrun time (of which she has now knocked off around 8 minutes with a PB 32.40) but by entering the Great Eastern Run. Of course, this was unavoidably cancelled at the start line but not to be deterred after a summer of Half Marathon training, Kate entered our own Half Marathon the week after and finished in 2.46.12.
That is an amazing achievement over the last 18 months and that is why Kate is October’s Club Member of the Month.
