Meet Kathy

Kathy can often be found running with our crew on Saturday mornings either at the Rachel’s Runners track or at our local parkrun event. In the beginning, she was a reluctant runner, but after an initial bit of arm twisting, Kathy discovered a love of running and inspired her family to join her on her journey. 869 more words

Katya Holloway: Back on the road to good health

I am recovering from an evil, no EE-VIL (said with Dracula-like maliciousness) flu bug.

It all started with my five-year-old, who woke up screaming one night and proceeded to paint our white carpets orange. 163 more words

Leanne joined Rachel’s Runners in the later part of 2014. She quickly found her running groove and joined us every week during Field 3. A woman of my own heart – one full of determination! 360 more words
