In January I decided to join Jog Belfast C25K with my daughter Orlaith, 8. Orlaith had been going to the parkruns for nearly a year and I thought it would be something both of us could do together! We ran through rain, sleet, wind for the 10 weeks and stuck to every session. Times I didn’t want to go and made every excuse but Orlaith wouldn’t let me give up! She loved the sessions, leading the group every week! The coaches were brilliant and we both gained so much confidence, as well as great friends and have now joined the North Belfast Harriers. I never had any interest in running before, now I have completed 10k runs. It has changed both of us, we love going out running together and keep each other motivated to push further each time. We have entered lots of races and have started to build up a medal collection. Thanks to Jog Belfast!
