I always liked the idea of running and I started on several occasions but lost interest straight away as I didn't enjoy running on my own and I had no accountability. But since starting RunHers Academy with Fiona 4 weeks ago, I actually look forward to our runs on Tuesdays and Thursdays and with Fiona's mentoring I feel great, I feel I am getting faster each week and with the group of ladies we have a chat and a laugh while running which makes it that little bit easier and fun too.
Fiona I just wanted to thank you for starting the beginners running academy! I wasn't very sure about joining but when I heard it was for beginners and slow paced to begin with I said I'd give it a go! I can't believe how much I'm enjoying it! I'm no spring chicken so to be able to start running for me gives me such satisfaction & such a sense of achievement!!
Coaching with Fiona has made a huge impact on my life and helped me to realise my goals and evaluate parts of my life that needed shaken up ie friends/fun/family time. Fiona was so motivating, encouraging and always so supportive even on the days I wasn't feeling my best. She has given me the tools to start working towards my goals. Her advice has been invaluable to me and it helped along the way that she is very easy to talk to and be able to have a laugh. While for me this journey was mainly to focus on my health and weight I have gained so much more from this. And will take this experience and knowledge with me as I continue to improve myself. I plan to stay working with Fiona going forward as she has helped me such. Highly recommend this program.
I signed up for RunHers Academy to get me active again after 2 long years of trying (& failing) to workout at home. I was apprehensive as I had never ran in this capacity. This group (& Fiona) has provided me with the inspiration & motivation to keep trying and in 5 short weeks I can now run 4+km without stopping. It’s not just running though, it’s a group of supportive, inspirational women all working towards the same goal. Give it a go, you won’t be disappointed.
