"I first got to know about Rock The Naked Truth from my friend Susan. She knows I've been pretty occupied with my work and haven't been working out regularly for nearly a year.
I shared with her that I was having a hard time finding the motivation to exercise, so she invited me to join her for the first ROCKrunners session at East Coast Park back in Jan 2016.
At that time, without knowing what RTNT was all about, I went and attempted my first 5km run. I remember it was a gruesome 5km for me. I was struggling to catch up with the rest right from the start of the run.
But Cheryl and her crew made sure that I was taken care of and gave me advice on how I should learn to listen to my body and to run at my own comfortable pace. When I was approaching the finishing line, I could see the rest of the group cheering for me. I felt really touched and it gave me strength to complete that last stretch.
Everyone was very supportive and friendly, and it made me feel like we were part of a family. Hence I started regularly attending ROCKrunners, as well as other RTNT events. From there, I found myself improving and enjoying long runs.
RTNT plays an important part in my life and joining the group is something I look forward to every week. Like what we always say, its our weekly dose of HAPPY PILL!
I would like to express my deepest appreciation to Cheryl - thank you for starting RTNT and for igniting my passion for fitness all over again. Continue to strive for what you love and I know that you are going to be an inspiration to so so many more! Keep rockin' RTNT!"
