"I bought my first pair of running shoes after 19 years, in December last year after a particularly bad bout of insomnia and refusing to rely on sleeping pills, preferring instead to exhaust myself out physically so I would have no choice but to crash.
I remember my very first run at ECP on a late Wednesday night - it was horrible. I couldn't even run that first 200m without stopping and gasping for breath whilst all these other runners swanned past me.
I wanted to be like them, effortless and swift as the North Wind. I dreamt of doing a 10km run without stopping; a half-marathon would be a miracle, and a full marathon seemed impossible.
With that secret ambition in mind I continued to run, always alone, and always late at night where there were less people, less pressure, just me and myself. I did improve, I did manage to run more than 200m without stopping, but something was missing and I didn't know what.
Fellow ROCKrunner Kerrin was an acquaintance then a friendly, unassuming soul she is, and she asked me out for a run. That was the first time I realised I could run a full 10km without stopping and I discovered the pleasure of running with a friend, one who could pace you, challenge, and encourage you and give you that hi-5 when the watch stopped.
Kerrin introduced me to Rock The Naked Truth and the rest was history. At ROCKrunners, I did my first ever plank, learnt what a burpee was, and understood the importance of being an all-rounder when it comes to health and happiness.
More importantly, it was the new friendships I forged with some of the most supportive and strongest people I have ever had the privilege to meet. With their cheers and camaraderie I have since done that 10km, that 15km, that half marathon, and as the SCMS full marathon looms before me, I know I will have someone running with me and waiting for me at that finish line. That's what family is about; our #ROCKfam.”
