I decided to sign up and be part of the whole #thisgirlcan campaign when it was announced they wanted people to promote getting fit and healthy in Essex.
I debuted by ambassadorship at Basildon parkrun this weekend. It must be my lucky t-shirt as I also bagged a PB at Basildon.
We decided to show one of my running buddies Basildon, it is a friendly parkrun in a nice park with a cafe a second from the finish line where the tea is hot and tasty. I like a nice bit of parkrun tourism.
Basildon has a special place in my fitness life. I use the pool and gym at the sporting village and I track train during the week there too.
I don’t normally like to shout all my fitness results from the rooftops but I hope that being part of this campaign, if I can get just one person up and doing something then my job is done.
I am not supermodel thin, I am not fast but I have lost a lot of weight through fitness plus my running fitness and times have improved. If i can do this then anyone can and I urge you to think about getting up and at the very least start a journey, who knows where it will take you. Through my journey I have met some fabulous people, been to all parts of Essex and proud to represent women and the county with this campaign. Come join me!
