MENTOR PROFILE - LAURA
Laura Running Club Mentor
My Mum has been a member of RMPAC for over 20 years so when being brought up I was always going along to races and club events. I always said that I would never run and couldn't run. Once I hit my early 20's I wanted to get fit and My Mum eventually persuaded me to go running with her. I started with a run/walk routine where I would run for a minute or so and be completely breathless! We would go out and gradually increase my run distance.  Before I knew it I was running 4+ miles up to 3 times a week and then I couldn't stop. It made me feel so good about myself and I find running such a good stress relief especially after a hard days work.
 
I started going to running club on and off a few years ago (due to work commitments). I already knew alot of members through my Mum but I was quite nervous about the running and what would be expected of me. To my surprise I had nothing to worry about, everyone was so welcoming and genuinely happy to see a new starter.

The thing I like most about RMPAC is that they welcome anyone at different fitness abilities and no one expects to much from you. I feel that going to the club gives me that motivation to try and improve with my efforts with the support from others. After months of nagging my husband to join the club he has recently signed up and is loving it! I am always recommending the club to my friends and have also met some great people since joining up.

Next year I am planning to start entering some races, I will start with a 10K and maybe eventually work up to a half marathon. And I know I will have the support of the club members to advise me and help me train for these goals.  I also love the social side of being a club member and I hope to be part of RMPAC for years to come.
