Just wanted to share some exciting running related news...
I'm a primary school teacher in a v deprived area of SW London and have been so inspired by how C25K has changed my life, that I've started a 9-11 year old girls early morning running club. I'm targeting the older girls as they're so body conscious and awkward, and have v little in their lives that I want them to feel they can achieve so much in a short space of time to build their self-esteem. It's about empowering young girls to do something for themselves that they can go on and do any time, any place, and feel like they can join in PE at secondary school next year with some confidence.
I've told them my tale and have shown them the 'This Girl Can' ad and they're soooo up for the challenge.
We start on Thursday morning and I'm so excited for them. We have some large, unfit girls and some super sporty, so it's a great mix.
Can't wait. A great way to start the school day.
