PR Profile: Kirsty Hodgkiss
Reason for joining PR?
I was diagnosed with a serious autoimmune condition when I was 39. I struggled with coming to terms with the diagnosis and the symptoms, chronic fatigue being one of them. I’d always run, but only short distances on my own. I wanted to spend more time on my well being and I’d seen the group advertised around the village and decided it was now or never.
How long have you been at PR?
I joined in January 2018
What do you most enjoy about PR?
I absolutely love the team spirit, everyone is so encouraging and supportive.
What is your best achievement since joining PR?
Running the Hampton Court place half marathon following coach’s training plan. I never thought I’d be able to achieve that distance.
What is your favourite session?
Love the sessions where we go out along the canal and woodbank.
What is your favourite meal?
So many to choose but love a decent curry.
What is your favourite drink?
A glass of red wine.
What is your favourite holiday destination?
We love Greece and Turkey, but also love Cornwall.
What would you sing on a Karaoke night?
I’m happy to watch others, to shy to stand up myself.
What makes you laugh the most?
Definitely my family.
