I have had asthma all my life, therefore never was able to run distances. As I grew older it improved and after meeting my husband who loved running, I decided I wanted to give it a go too. I joined Janet’s run club in 2011, to train for the Bridge to Brisbane, I couldn’t run further than 2-3km at this time. With Janet’s incredible support, encouragement and training I managed to run the 10km race that first year. Since then I have conquered Mt Cootha, and run 2 half marathons, and I now using running as a way of distressing and for social enjoyment with the rest of the club. I am fitter than I have ever been – Cheers Janet!
