23 March 2018
Dan completed his first 10 mile run. Dan started with our None To Run group in October 2017 with 30 second run segments. Just 6 months later, he completed 10 miles after achieving a good number of 10ks. He had run before but progress had always been thwarted by injury but by following the None To Run, Dan was able to build up slowly and avoid injury. Now look at him!
First up, congratulations to Dan (53.46 PB), Laura (53.58 PB), Tara (1:04.59 PB) and Andrea (1:06.55) who completed the Stanwick Lakes 10k on 18 March with Kevin (37.09 PB) who completed the 5k. The weather was freezing and there was snow on the ground and so its no surprise they look super happy with their results. Great job guys!
