PR Profile:  Chrissi Dewsbury 

Reason for joining? 

I’d started running again properly in 2017, doing two half marathons but when I went back to work after having time off for maternity I found myself “too busy” to run.  When I moved to Penkridge later that year someone suggested PR to me and so I thought it would be a great way to get back into the running and also make some local friends.

How long have you been coming to PR?

I started in 2020 just after the first lockdown was lifted.

What do you enjoy the most about PR? 

The variety, the focus on stamina training and the fact that you can work as hard or as little as you want without being judged.  Sometimes I turn up and want to chat more than push myself but that’s what makes it so much fun.

What is your best achievement since joining? 

Doing my third half marathon this year.

What is your favourite session? I enjoy the hills the most and sprint sessions but to be honest I enjoy all of it.

What is your favourite meal? 

A Sunday roast dinner with all the trimmings.

What is your Favourite drink? Champagne and Budweiser are probably my favourite drinks but I do like a variety.

What is your favourite holiday destination? 

The Caribbean – Jamaica so far but I haven’t been to all of them.  I’ve always wanted to go to Aruba though.

What is your Favourite song or artist? 

I love all sorts of genres but Ed Sheran is one of my faves and I do love a bit of Oasis.

What famous person would you like to meet? 

Harry Rednapp – I’d love to have a night out with him, we would have good banter.
