Run with Lydia & Louise

Run with Lydia & Louise

Double the run fun! I was put in touch with these two gems by a mutual friend. We were all doing our own running things and the girls were embarking on a special challenge – a run streak of 100 consecutive days to raise awareness for the FORWARD charity. 100 days! You can read more about it in their blog 

After chatting through our interests the idea was to get involved and run together, adding a bit of variety to their quest and sharing some experiences in the process. On Day 54 of their challenge we met up before work one morning. A Quick 5km down from the city into and around St James Park before the girls introduced me to their ‘Hi-Five’ corner. A Great little motivational idea – find a place to celebrate your runs and embrace the fun.

As we got to know each other that morning, we realised we might have a number of other mutual interests and acquaintances. Something tells me this wouldn’t be the last time we’ meet. As journeys go, these are two of the inspirational runners I’ve met so far through running.
