MENTOR PROFILE - JO
Jo RMPAC Mentor
The main reason I joined running club is because I really enjoy running & wanted to better my times. I have good friends that run and they encouraged me to go along with them, yes I was really scared as I thought everyone there would be faster and better than me, I wouldn't be able to keep up and I'd look silly..... but that is very far from the truth!!

  From the first evening I joined I was made very welcome, since then I have made new friends, my running has improved a lot, we have a good laugh most weeks and I look forward to going. My first achievement with the club was running a 10k race, the encouragement through the club is brilliant and encouraged to run a 10 mile race, something I could never have seen me doing a few years ago when I was 18st!!
In 2010 my husband had cancer, he was 32 & our children were 4 & 1, it was one of the scariest times of my life and made me re-asess EVERYTHING. When we'd got through and we knew everything was going to be alright my first course of action was my weight, having now shed 6st I needed another aim and running was it. When I was big I used to see the races around the island and dream of being able to do something like that but knowing I never would.........until now.

My big aim this year is the Portland 10, I know it's not a marathon or anything like that and as I previously said I've ran 10 miles before but this is the race I've sat back and wished I could do for years!! Without the support of the club there is no way I would've got this far so who knows yet what is to come?
