We've been talking to some of our RunVerity members to see how they've been getting on.
WHAT MADE YOU JOIN RUNVERITY?
I joined RunVerity beginner's class in April having only done short distance running before and that said some years previously. I loved the thought of running distances as most of my family, including my husband had previously run 5k, 10k, half and full marathons and I had always been the supporter....so I joined RV feeling very nervous.
WHAT DIFFERENCE HAS JOINING RUNVERITY MADE TO YOUR RUNNING?
When I attempted to run any kind of distance I always struggled with my breathing which affected my confidence and I gave up. Running with Verity has turned me into a "runner"
HOW HAS A COACHED GROUP IMPROVED YOUR RUNNING?
Having a coach who runs alongside you giving you advice and building your confidence is priceless...talking through techniques, warm ups, cool downs, encouragement to continue to the best of your ability and understanding that everyone is different.
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO ANYONE WHO WAS THINKING OF JOINING RUNVERITY?
It is the best thing that I ever did, I certainly wouldn't be doing this on my own without a coach.
