"Hello my name is Claire and last year I turned 40. I have four children,two sons aged 20 and 17 and two girls aged 7 and 5. I began running in May 2015 after suffering depression and my marriage breaking down and having problems with alcohol and smoking. I am now 3 stone lighter,a non smoker,I'm t total and I am in a very happy place and that's all down to running and the journey I have been on.
"Life changing is how I would describe this group!! I joined the group in Darlington a month ago and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I'm a big girl and couldn't run at all. I was nervous but excited. Claire is amazing!! She is so encouraging and supportive. With her help I can actually run now!! I might not be fast but I will be soon. I love how we all work together as a group, we really are a team.
Running has helped me in all aspects of life. I have so much more energy, I sleep better and i feel great!! I can't thank Claire enough, I feel like a different person!" - Barbra
