I was inspired to start jog Belfast by my 4 year old daughter – Eve. Eve regularly takes part in junior parkruns and loves running – her confidence and enjoyment was amazing to watch and I thought maybe I could do that!
Having never run in my life and it possibly being the most scary thing I have ever thought about doing never mind the trainers you have to wear!(haven’t owned trainers since school!) In January this year I turned up at Girdwood in the rain! The next ten weeks were rain, snow, wind, run, rain, snow, wind, run! It sounds awful but it was one of best things I have ever done in my life!!! And the sun came out for our graduation run in the waterworks!
Our coaches were amazing and we had such laughs along the way!
I have now joined North Belfast Harriers – with my Jog Belfast friends!! Friends for life and the things you learn running are entertaining to say the least. We are now running 10k’s and getting medals and we are legends!!!!!
Anyone considering Jog Belfast – do it! You won’t regret it – you’ll get fitter, feel healthier, meet amazing people and have all
