It’s been a bumpy ride for me and my relationship with healthy living. I have spent my entire adult life largely sedentary, clinically depressed and using food as medicine. I joined Redway Runners 18 months ago as a beginner and plodded my way to a 5K graduation. I continued with running and achieved some good results but felt as though I needed more goal-driven structure. I’m rather competitive with myself and like to “beat yesterday’s me”
Katie was an obvious choice. Her focus and determination seem relentless (along with her use of hashtags!) and she gets results! A flurry of PBs for herself and many of her clients, this woman knows what she’s doing! So I put myself in the capable hands of Katie, fully expecting myself to fail, because for years that is how my brain worked. I had a running training plan to focus me for The Great North Run, embarked on the 30 day clean eating challenge and signed up for regular PT and core classes.
Katie beat my lack of confidence into submission. I don’t know how she does it but she forces you to believe in yourself and push outside your comfort zone. There is something so absolutely genuine about her and her desire to see each and every one of her clients change, improve and believe in themselves. I don’t recognise myself now and I don’t recognise a lot of the clients she’s worked with. We are all brimming with confidence! Because with the right tools, the right guidance, the right mindset anything is possible!
I’m a changed person in more ways than one! Inches lost, pounds lost, PBs and confidence gained.
Thank you Katie, it’s been EPIC. And it’s only just started. Bring on The Great North Run and bring on 2019 Milton Keynes Marathon!
