Bev is embarking on the challenge of a 10k
Bev, our Rest Homes Team Leader, has been on a journey with running.
Many of her older friends have quite an active lifestyle, and seeing those guys as role models, she started thinking about what she could do.
After seeing the health benefits of her husband taking up Parkrun, she felt inspired to join him. Building fitness, Bev started looking at more opportunities to run, and will be completing the 5k Parkrun on Hove seafront this weekend, looking for a personal best!
Bev will be running the Seaford 10k on the 3rd September, and will be raising money for the City Mission.
Bev has completed her 10k, and she shared her thoughts with us –
“Last Sunday I completed my first 10k run. It was good weather for running being dry but over cast and the course was flat as we were running in Seaford prom. The mission kindly printed my name on the back of my runnning top so I was encouraged along the way by complete strangers calling out of “Go on Bev”. There was a really good atmosphere among the competitors and supporters and I was cheered home in the time of 1:05:29, several minutes faster than I was expecting. After the race I felt a great sense of achievement and slightly achey muscles but also I thankful for all the support people have given me.”
