I am a 26 year old veterinary surgeon and (completely amateur!) runner based in Nottingham in the UK. I took up running about three years ago, but it is only more recently that I have realised what a profound effect it has had on both my mental and physical health. From being a procrastination to vet school revision it has become vital to my well-being. I am passionate about encouraging others to find the confidence to give exercise a go, particularly women. Running has taught me to put one foot in front of the other and keep on going; a strategy that is getting me through pretty much whatever life decides to fling at me! I hope that this blog will enable me to inspire more people to dig out their old trainers and get out there – it might change your life too. And even if it doesn’t, I promise you won’t regret it.
