The very first Cumbernauld 10K in 2007 was my running inspiration, I had never ran before this and when I saw it advertised myself and my neighbour Amanda decided to give it a go. I can honestly say since then I have never looked back.
I have developed with the help of friends and the support of parkrun (I am Co Event Director at Drumpellier). I have tried various distances right up to ultra marathon and met so many wonderful people and enjoyed many adventures through running. I also guide three visually impaired runners who are a real inspiration to me.
I love the inclusion that OTR brings to the local community, it's great to see people getting off the couch and progressing their running with a smile on their face.
