School Gate mums' running group "don't moan as much now"
14 August 2015
Active Devon are pleased to share a short video they made about a successful beginners' running group.
Take a look at the video and be inspired and enthused by those who managed the coach to 5k in just 9 weeks!
The women in the group all have different reasons for joining the group - hear their reasons and see if you can identify with them.
- It's free
- It gets me outside
- I'm not on my own
- I feel more energised
- I meet new people
- It gets me fitter
- I feel better in myself
- It's an escape from the family
One participant said, "My friend signed me up and told me to go - and now we encourage each other and we even run together outside the group." Another added, "I can go for longer now and feel the benefit."
One noted, "It is not as bad as i thought it would be" as she ran alongside the camera. And a final comment from one participant, "I come every week and I moan every week - but now I don't moan as much."
