“ I used to drive or get the bus to work , but now I walk in every day. I wanted to get fitter/healthier as I sit at my job all day, I also wanted to do this as I have a significant birthday next year! I hope that BFF helps more local people get together to share activity time so that we further our community spirit. It will be lovely to meet more local people and get fitter at the same time. It is great to find out different routes in my local area for cycling, walking or running.
I joined the beginners running group which meets at Costa Coffee on a Monday at 6pm, the leaders are fantastic, encouraging and supportive without pushing me too far. A great team!”
