December 2020 - Will Langdon
Congratulations to Will for being chosen Runner of the Month for December!
Will started his running journey at Parkrun in August 2017 in a bid to shed a few pounds, and joined LFR a few months later after being persuaded by his mum Janet who was already a member.
Since then Will has had quite the journey, full of ups and a few too many downs, but lockdown did him wonders and he's come back to full strength and fitness, running some incredibly fast PBs in only the last few weeks.
Will was initially wary of joining a club thinking it was only for ridiculously fast people with crazy training routines, but he's since found out you can do as little or as much as you like, some weeks you want to go flat out, others just to run and a chat. He said, "I’ve run with LFR to lose weight, I’ve run for fun and I’ve run to improve my running. It’s reassuring to know there is a wealth of knowledge and experience in the club so someone will always be able to offer advice or guidance if I ask."
