I began with BOTR at 60 in Jan 2023, never having run, not really knowing how to.
Six months on I am getting ready to run the City To Surf!
The BOTR program is so empowering, doing what I never thought I could do!
Each step is achieveable , and before you know it you can run for 30 minutes straight!
A wonderful benefit to running has been my increased body strength and reduced joint pain.
Since starting to run with BOTR I have achieved not only the finish of the city2surf but also the half marathon which I could not have done without the support of all the run leaders. Through BOTR I have fun new friends and run companions and a passion to support my mental health which I am forever grateful for.
And MEL as a leader of this organisation you just rock in all the volunteer work you do and what you give back to the communities. I am looking forward to running many years with the BOTR team.
I signed up to Boobs on the Run because I wanted to improve my fitness and make some new friends.
I got all that and so much more. Three years on and I’m more fit than I’ve ever been, I’m part of a wonderful supportive community of friends, and I’ve discovered the amazing benefits in mental well-being that running can provide. What Mel has created with Boobs on the Run is truly life-changing. Running makes me happy!
