Our September Runner of the Month - Jennet Ingham
29 October 2021
Our September winner won a large Kukri kit bag
RunTogether member Jennet Ingram was nominated by her Run Leader Alice Welch from RunTogether group Alice In Runderland. Jennet told us:
"I'm absolutely thrilled to have won this Kukri bag as the Run Together runner of the month for September. It's going to be a great addition to my ever-expanding sports kit!”
Jennet joined the Alice in Runderland group 12 months ago and has gone from strength to strength and now manages 5k easily. Alice her Run Leader describes herself as a “Very proud coach [Jennet is] not a fast runner but a tenacious one!”.
Previously Jennet may have said she’s not a runner, however she attends weekly sessions every Wednesday morning and has completed the 5km track challenge, for her local primary school fundraiser in blistering heat and completed the Race for life. Jennet said she was totally surprised to be chosen for this award.
"I don't class myself in the same league as many of my fellow Alice in Runderland / RunTogether runners, but I keep going weekly which is why I was chosen - for persistence and consistency. What I love about going to the RunTogether running group is the feeling of being part of a team. Running with others is so much more enjoyable than running solo, in my opinion. I attend sessions regularly as much for this reason - socialising - as for the usual reason - getting fit”.
Jennet encourages anyone who hasn’t joined a local running club to consider doing so. "It is the most fun way I can think of taking regular exercise."
