This Girl Can – Essex

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!

  1. Excellent news! Congrats on becoming a This Girl Can Essex ambassador. I hiked with another ambassador on Saturday – the excellent Lucy Edwards of Paddle Pedal Pace blog and she made all the difference to my pacing 🙂
