"I picked up running about a year back, at the point of time when I was unhappy with myself, with work and life. I wanted some changes but I struggled to achieve the image in my mind of how I am "supposed to be".
I was never a sporty person and I didn't think running could ever become my passion, because I struggled with confidence when it comes to fitness and sports. I started running anyway, on my own.
I was afraid of meeting new people and at times, was unsure of myself. It was truly a challenge for me to step out of my comfort zone to join Rock The Naked Truth.I started coming for ROCKrunners regularly and I learnt that challenges are what make us grow. We are stronger than we think we are.
Here at our ROCKrunners sessions, we share the scary (eg. planks) and the hardships (eg. burpees), but also the joy and the fun.
Thank you #RockFam for always being there at the finishing line, no matter how long it takes me to complete. I realise I am no longer running alone in this journey and that's where an amazing little thing called courage grows."
