Lauren’s Couch to 5K

Follow Lauren’s journey from Couch to 5K. She shares her experience of the challenge, including the highs and the lows, and why she decided to give it a go! Definitely worth a read!

“I’ve gone from struggling to be able to run for just one minute, to running for thirty minutes without stopping. It just seems so unreal and something I never thought I would say but here we are and wow I feel 100 times better than I did before.”
