Getting to Know You - Tracy Cardno
I have a guest appearance on my blog this week. The club is growing bigger every week and its getting harder for members to know who everyone is so thought this would be a nice way of getting to know some of our newest runners.
Tell us about yourself:
Age 49 (well for the next 5 weeks)
After gaining a lot of weight I took up walking which then turned into a kind of running (which is a love hate relationship), I’m also a very keen swimmer. Now 3 stone lighter and fitter.
Previous running experience/ achievements:
2 half marathons, 7 10k’s, 4 5k’s and 151 parkruns (now a run director at Rushmere)
Who do you run with:
Mainly on my own, occasionally with friends.
Why did you decide to join LFR:
I have always thought of running clubs as being clicky but after meeting so many friendly LFR’S at parkrun - my mind has been changed (now known as the crazy one driving from Newport Pagnell to run with LFR).
Experience with the club so far:
Has been great so supportive – and it is defiantly FUN.
Future running plans:
I don’t class myself as a proper runner but I get round so would love to improve my running. Who knows what the future holds – maybe a marathon one day ☺
Say hello to Tracy when you see her next!
