Meet Janice one of our ladies who joined during the pandemic and is currently training for 10K 👏🏻👏🏻
Hi my name is Janice im 47 years old, live in Budhill ave with my 18 year old son Lee who is my world. I work as a support worker for physiotherapy department at the moment im in Shettleston health centre. I am very lucky to still have my parents and don't know where I would be without them. I started my jiggly journey September 2020, after thinking of joining a couple of times. I had seen the girls with their pink t shirts running about budhill and thought who are they, looked up Facebook then one day mentioned it to Kirtsy Wilson in Baillieston and she said it was great and lovely bunch of girls. I then contacted Elaine and started September last year during lockdown, I had never did any running I enjoyed spin classes but hadn't done any exercise for years. I started the c25k thinking what am I doing I will never run 90 secs. I graduated the c25k got my medal and was so proud of myself. Now im running 5k, I struggle with mental health and feel the running really helps. I've now signed up for 10k but still in lockdown but feel the support and encouragement from all the girls when you post your run on the website. I do look forward to when we can all run the streets of East end all together.
