Getting to Know You – Tracy Cardno

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:

Tracy Cardno

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.

Favourite distance:


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!
