[Words by Eleanor Hyde]
I moved to Edinburgh last year after graduating from university. I didn’t know anybody and was looking for new friends to run with.
The first time I turned up at WRE, I bumped into Jess who had also moved that week and we got chatting. Coming to WRE social runs generally became a great way to meet new people and build friendships. I always felt welcomed and everyone genuinely makes the effort to include new people or make conversation. Jess and I became friends outside of WRE, and a year later (whilst running) decided to move in together. We’ve now started to bring our other flatmates along. We met at We Run, and now we’re living together – talk about training motivation!
