Catherine Snook starting out on her running journey
Hi everyone, I’m pretty new to Doddlers and an absolute beginner. I started in the New Year with minimal running experience. I often see everyone’s fantastic achievements on the Doddler Facebook page and wanted to share something from a beginners perspective. Today I entered my first 5K run in Sherborne. It wasn’t officially timed but moreover, today was about building my confidence enough over the past few weeks to know I could enter a public run, plus I wanted a medal!
We all started somewhere and I thought it would be nice to also celebrate those that are at the beginning of their journey. As a beginner I’m gaining so much from our fantastic weekly sessions and from all of the lovely Doddlers I have met so far and I’m looking forward to seeing how far my feet can take me over the coming months!
Thank you Doddlers for all your support in helping me achieve this goal Catherine Snook
Laura Jones completed the Everest Marathon
Words cannot describe how I felt completing the Everest Marathon ! 2 weeks of trekking at high altitude to get to the start line was just the beginning.
What took 12 days to get from Namche to Everest Base Camp, took me only 9:35:27 to get down again – 26 miles 2500m descent and 1200m ascent and 90% above 4,000m altitude.
