I started running 6 years ago, generally off and on but wasn’t making much progress so decided to join a local running club. I had a look at the local running clubs and came across Tyne Bridge Harriers. After a few sessions I knew they were the club for me and I’ve never looked back since.
Still new to this running game, I’m coming up to my 3rd year running for the club, distances may have not increased massively. However I’m now more focused on my running and always keen to improve for the good, thanks to the wonderful people I’ve met through the club – from members to the coaches.
In late 2016 I joined the Tyne Bridge juniors section as a helper, looking to gain coaching experience. With the club junior section increasing by the week I was welcomed with opened arms. In early 2018 I was given the opportunity to gain my coaching assistant license, which has helped me develop my skills. Leading to me wanting a career in coaching others to reach their potential.
I’m normally the one running around during relay races as the other coaches stand and watch as I get beat. Wednesday night’s are all fun and games in the Tyne Bridge Juniors session (with a little running too 😉 )
