We Run Edinburgh

I’ve progressed through all of the groups and I’m now a marathon runner

[Words by Kirstie MacLennan]

I started my WRE journey with the 0 to 5km group, a bit apprehensive and nervous but, because of WRE, I am now a marathon runner!

Since attending that first session, I can honestly say that I have never looked back.  I’ve become a WRE groupie and have progressed through all the groups, completing the 10km, half marathon, and marathon groups, running my first marathon (London) in just over 2 years from my start.  The WRE team have not only given me a solid grounding in running technique, but they has also given me access to a community of brilliant women that I am truly proud to be part of.  Through WRE I have made some great friends, have had some great laughs, and now have the confidence to just lace up and run!  I couldn’t be more grateful.
