And the Great South Run was Great

So many inspirational stories from RV members who completed the GSR yesterday, with over 60 members running this local event, it was like a dream coming true for so many.  97% achieved a PB and for one member a PB of 22 mins! For 35 members this was a first for them, the majority of them coming up from the RunVerity Beginner's course, some only completing the course in February of this year.

Here's some of their thoughts on yesterday's events

 "So in November last year I started a 8 week RV beginners course and it was the best thing I have done. With all the help and support from the RV family i have lost one and a half stone I’m fitter healthier and a lot happier I’ve had my ups and downs but you have all kept me going. Who would have thought that less than a year on an over weight unfit 55 year old would be doing all this." Paul 2017

Running a continuous mile was a challenge in Feb when I was doing beginners.

Today: 10 miles.
