Saturday 13th June saw 2 of the Pershore Plum Plodders newest members, Sandra and Gail, come and join us at Worcester Woods Parkrun to complete our 9 week C25K course.
Suzanne Price lead the course, which started on the 13th May, with help from various club members who were on hand to support and encourage participants each week.
Steadily building up their stamina, distance and confidence in a safe manner helped them achieve their goal which we were delighted to see.
I caught up with Sandra after the run who told me:
“I have always wanted to be able to run/jog and have tried on a few occasions without success, this is why I would highly recommend the 9 week C25K course with the Pershore Plum Plodders. With the support and encouragement that they gave me, it made it possible and if I can do it, anyone can.
My first Parkrun I really enjoyed. I won’t deny, it was hard, but Sally and Elinor’s support and encouragement got me round. I am now looking forward to the next Parkrun to try and improve my time ! ”
Brilliant achievement from both ladies and many congratulations. We will look forward to seeing you join in with our usual Plod nights.
If you, or anyone you know of, are thinking about taking up running, maybe you’re getting back into it after time away or you are just looking for a friendly club to join, then why not come along to one of our Monday night sessions where someone will be on hand to start you off on your running journey with us ?
