See Laura!

A few weeks ago I found myself wondering who Laura actually was, and did a bit of googling. She has actually posted on the forum. Her profile is at healthunlocked.com/laurastq

There's a video promoting C25K featuring Laura at the bottom of:

nhs.uk/livewell/c25k/pages/...

Just thought you'd like to see the face behind the voice that so filled our consciousness over the fateful nine weeks!

It seems Laura no longer exists according to my browser when I click the link :(

Ahhh sorry Steve, it is Windows Explorer the problem, with FireFoxy it is OK :)

I take that back - there was an unwanted full stop punctuating the URL. Should work now.

Steve this is verging on stalking :)

She doesn't look like that in my head. She could also do with investing in a good sports bra :)

I'm ashamed to admit I didn't notice that. She is a very bouncy runner though (and I'm not referring to your sports bra comment).

And she told us not to bounce as it wastes energy :)

That's the site where I first found C25K so I knew what she looked like :)

I posted a few comments after my runs on there during the first weeks of C25K, and then I found this lovely forum :)

A shame that sainte Laura no longer posts on here. Or perhaps that would detract from her aire of magical mystery. Maybe if she just appeared once a year like the queen ...... :)

Thanks Steve for the links. it was great to put a face to the name, and it was fascinating to learn that she is actually someone who followed c25k as well - I always assumed it would an actor or a professional speaker of some sort.

So did I - and as you say, it's nice to know she did actually follow the plan, too!

I saw her in the 'Strength and Flex' video before starting c25k so I already had her picture in my head before hearing the podcasts.

She's pretty much how I imagined her actually. Right down to the swishing ponytail!

It is good to put a face to voice though ☺

You can watch the strength and flex vids on nhs livewell. She goes through the various stretches in some park, using the benches and railings etc. I watched all this stuff as i knew nothing about anything when i started ☺
