Reason for joining PR? My daughter and son-in-law had been married for a couple of years and I began to feel that babies were on the horizon. I just knew I needed to get fit enough to play with any grandchildren, so when I saw the posters around the village I thought “Right, it’s now or never!” Great timing as the week after I joined, they announced they were expecting!!!
How long have you been at PR? I joined in January 2015, not long after PR was formed. 12 people at a session was a great turn out then!
What do you enjoy most about PR? Easy answer – the camerarderie! I’ve met some fabulously awesome people through PR!
Best achievement since joining PR? Getting fit enough to do the MacMillan Mighty Hike (walking 27 miles across the Peak District) and running in the iconic Blaydon Race. Standing in Grey Street, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne singing the song with thousands of others was a spine-tingling moment I will treasure!
Favourite session? Relays every time! Can’t walk for two days after though because I love to go for it!
Favourite meal? at home, daughter No 2’s Teriyaki Chicken and out is anything at The Oakley in Brewood. Favourite Drink? I would just die without tea (Yorkshire) and G&T. In separate vessels, obvs! 😂
Favourite Holiday Destination? Menorca but, realistically, anywhere in the world if it’s with my wonderful Famalam!
Reason for joining PR? I joined as i had been running locally around Brewood, Sal had already joined and said how good it was… so i felt inspired to join. I thought it would help me improve, but also give me better routine and focus, which would provide a distraction from work and other day to day pressures….
How long have you been at PR? I think i joined about 4 years ago.
What do you enjoy most about PR? I really enjoy meeting people, i think the group is great and really supportive of each other. I think i have improved over the last couple of years in my running, and the team spirit has really helped achieve that. So thank you to the group. Through lockdown I think it has brought the group closer together. All of the different sessions are great and i never walk away at the end of session thinking I have not enjoyed it.
What is your best achievement since joining PR? I think my running confidence has grown dramatically, feeling more comfortable in races I have entered. To be fair getting the odd runner of the week and Wednesday warrior has helped keep me motivated……
What is your Favourite session? I like Indian File, Fartlek, and the Magic Mile.
What is your Favourite meal? Anything Sal cooks to be fair…. I am so lucky and looked after, followed by Chicken Tikka, Dupiaza Madras hot (but not at the same time).

What is your Favourite holiday destination? I love Devon and Cornwall, but I would love to go back to Hawaii where I went on honeymoon!
Reason for joining PR? After having two children, I decided I didn’t want to be a plump Mother! I also wanted some head space away from the kids and to push myself and get fit so I could run and play with the kids without feeling like I was going to have a heart attack. I wanted a club I could do easily access in Penkridge and also take up a hobby I could get into anytime I liked from home. Penkridge Runners was the obvious choice 😀
How long have you been at PR? Since January 2015.
What do you enjoy most about PR? The social aspect of chatting to others and getting to know new people. I’ve met two of my best friends Leah and Becky through joining PR. I enjoy feeling fit and healthy and pushing myself.
What is your best achievement since joining PR? I’ve completed three half marathons and recently got a 10k PB.
What is your Favourite session? I like the continuous running sessions the most as a long slow continuous run is where I feel the most comfortable but I like the mix up of each session and how it makes you do the best you can, doing running that you just wouldn’t do on your own like hills or relays.
