Sophie, a member at our Darlington health club has successfully completed the Great North Run!
“This is my first time doing the Great North Run. I was helping my friend train for it at the beginning of the year, she kept asking me to do it with her and after much persuasion I bit the bullet and signed myself up. I wanted to do it through a local charity so I did it for Children's Cancer North. Me and my friend built up our miles each week, pushing ourselves further and further. I don't think any training can prepare you for the GNR, but the day went over quickly. I amazed myself I was able to push through, mile 9-11 was the toughest for me but I completed the race in 2hours 26mins! I have showed interest in doing it next year!”
