A message from Jason
My running journey started back in March 2019. Coming up to almost 4 years of running and in that time, I've run a total of 13,100 miles.
2022 I finished the year on 4700 miles I started running as a weightless aid and in just under the 4 years I've lost just over 5 stone in weight. My first event was a 70km event in Wales so some might say start as you mean to go on and since then my running has gone from strength to strength and all self-taught.
I have never followed a training plan as difficult to fit them in with work but I just motivate myself to get out and get out there on the beautiful trails I have on my door step. Running has helped a lot with my mental health which I am entirely grateful for as without it I don't know where I'd be.
The running community I class as my running family and the support I've received since joining has meant so much to me. Knowing you have the support of others is an amazing feeling. I have never met anyone in person yet but I hope I have helped to support and inspire others along my running journey.
