This Girl Can has helped transform my life!

I am really passionate about the 'This Girl Can' campaign. For me, it was the push I needed to become active again.
My daughter and niece are both very fit and healthy and were trying to encourage me to get active with them but I didn't think I'd keep up at first. I then came across the 'This Girl Can' campaign and felt I could go for it!
I started off by taking up swimming which was a great support to losing a little bit of weight. I then took up a couch to 5k programme in Upton. I liked the programme because it was very gradual and progressive.
I've been running around the block with my daughter and niece for around 6 months now and I recently began taking part in parkrun. It's been a wonderful way to meet new people within my community. I now have a whole group of friends in my town that I wouldn't have known otherwise. I have even lost 6 stone in weight!
