Lesley and Emily set themselves a challenge during lockdown to complete a Half Marathon in aid of the Beaston Cancer Trust. The girls not only completed the challenge and they earned themselves a medal in the process too!
Lesley is a keen runner in her spare time and says “If you’ve never run before, why not give it a go during the summer holiday by trying a Couch to 5k. The benefits are amazing”
Keeping fit and active is something Emily recommends too.
“I was never a fun fan of running but I tried couch to 5k is for beginners and it was really helpful.” Emily adds “Its free, reduces the chance of health risks, great for weight loss and exercise releases endorphins which helps your mood. What more could you ask for?
