PR Profile: Marie Marshall

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.

What is your Favourite meal? Pizza

What is your Favourite drink? Coffee/Cider/Shandy or Single Malt Whiskey

What is your Favourite holiday destination?
I got married in Barbados which was fabulous, San Francisco was beautiful and Greek islands are just gorgeous.
