Claire’s Fundraising Story
During my school years, I was an avid hockey player, however, due to suffering from a broken wrist, I began running, and since then I haven’t looked back.
I took up running for fitness and loved the fresh air and enjoyed exploring new places.
A few years into running I was injured so I started to relearn to swim. After being encouraged to buy a bike I took part in my first triathlon with some friends, which I loved. I then got the bug, and since then have entered many triathlon races.
Like most people during the pandemic, I wanted to keep up my regular exercise so I began running and walking more often. Despite my enthusiasm for exercise, it was during Covid-19 that I suffered from an ankle injury as a result of doing possibly ‘too much’ exercise.
I am on the road to recovery and have since been training whilst doing simple movements and stretches to build up the strength in my ankle.
The Blackpool Half Marathon has given me a goal and something to work towards, and I am proud to be raising money for The Inclusive Club Charity Neuven is supporting.
Thank you for reading my story.
