Julia set up a village running club through Run in England and despite studying for a degree in nutrition and having a young family she has focussed her energy on making this group work. She`s brought a diverse group of people together, most of whom couldn`t even run for a minute 12 months ago. Now we take part in 10k runs together - our quickest time so far is 46mins...from a man who before last summer had never ever run. We`re committed to supporting beginners (we`ve all been there thanks to Julia) and have built friendships. Thanks to Julia, we`re fitter, healthier and happier than we`ve ever been and achieved things we thought were impossible such a short time ago. She`s an inspiration and our group grows by the week as does the conversation and laughter. For anyone that ever said exercise wasn`t fun...they haven`t met Julia. Without her there wouldn`t be this great community project and dozens of healthier hearts in our village. I wouldn`t be two dress sizes smaller and feel about 20 years younger! Every village needs a Julia and we`re lucky to have such a brilliant women to keep us running. Please reward her energy, enthusiasm and drive by recruiting her to be part of your team the way she`s been the captain of ours. Thank you.
