I joined BOTR as part of my recovery from Bowel Cancer. I’ve always been active and walked everywhere, however I could never get myself to that next level, running.
The exercise physiologist at Concord Cancer Centre told me all about Mel and BOTR and what an inspiring and amazing person she is. She recommended BOTR as part of my recovery.
I turned up to Get Running and felt sick, before I knew it 10 weeks had passed and I was running for 30 minutes. That 30 minutes changed my view on running and my exercise regime. It inspired me to join Stay Running and another 10 weeks 7 kms clocked up!
Well what else could I do but Keep Running and I look forward to every Tuesday night with a great group of ladies, no pressure, no competition, no pretentiousness just chatty runs and lots of laughs with an awesome run coach Lesley.
Mel and her run coaches are legends, especially Ally, Lesley and Joy-Ann they have all been the best inspiration.
If you’re looking for an inclusive and inspiring bunch of people to get fit with I couldn’t recommend one better than BOTR. If I can run anyone can, it’s such a sense of freedom.
Thankyou Mel for all your Charity raising, hard work and generosity. It’s been such a pleasure to be part of BOTR I couldn’t imagine life without all of you legends.
