I signed up for the 5K course on impulse, and it was a life-changing decision. I was convinced that I wouldn’t be able to run. Not the case! Up & Running not only taught me how to run, it completely changed my attitude to exercise.
I was so used to starting something new, then giving up after a few weeks when it got too hard. Up & Running taught me to really understand myself, that motivation isn’t a bolt out of the blue, and that perseverance isn’t as hard as it seems.
Yes, I’m fitter, trimmer and stronger. But that’s just one of the benefits. I’ve taken much more from Up & Running than just the ability to run, because the Up & Running attitude has filtered through to every aspect of my life. I have more determination to achieve things and I approach challenges in a much more focused way. I’m more adventurous, and more respectful of my body. I’m far more committed to my physical, mental and emotional health than I ever have been before. I’ve made incredible friends all over the world, and couldn’t ask for a better support network.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Up & Running to anyone and everyone. You don’t need to be super fit, or skinny, or athletic. All you need is the willingness to try and Up & Running will definitely change your life for the better.
