I’ve been with the club for nearly 5 years. I was previously running with family and friends but then met Carl, the rest is history.
The local gym was having a refurbishment done so a few of us decided to run outside. We started off with a 3-mile loop and gradually ended up doing a half marathon in 2007. It was the Mic Morris Half Marathon, Blaenavon to Cwmbran!
The social aspect and keeping fit.
I want to run a marathon! I started training last year but ended up getting injured as I was training to fast and too often. This time I’ve changed my routine and stopped putting pressure on myself.
Running my first half, the Mic Morris Half in 1 hour, 50 minutes!
I wish I had completed a marathon years ago.
I really enjoy the Merthyr Mawr Pudding race just before Christmas. Loads of lovely people with the same interests… who can get to the mulled wine and mince pies first!!
I also love the CRC Newport City loop. There’s a bit of everything enroute, stunning views, fabulous countryside and often a few fellow runners are running too!
I enjoy listening to Amazon music, in particular ‘Running Music 2022’ is my favourite go to running music now.
I love a fabulous Sunday lunch with all the trimmings. It’s obviously better when it’s already been made for you!
Don’t put too much pressure on yourself to go faster or run further, the whole process takes time. Running is all about being consistent and enjoying the process.
Join Caerleon Running Club, we really are the best club!
