Mike Jones - Road Runner

I’ve have been a member at KTH for over two years after my wife signed me up for a Christmas present. Although I had already run a marathon I was concerned that firstly I wouldn’t be quick enough and secondly my wife wanted me out the house more. I’m glad to say I was quick enough and my wife now seems happier!

At KTH, there are several groups of runners going out on a Tuesday & Thursday to cater for all abilities and although I started off in a slower group I soon progressed. My running has improved with the training and I also enjoy taking part in races for the club. I always thought races were for elite athletes but after competing I realised there were many slower runners taking part too.

I enjoy training nights as it is an opportunity to catch up with friends whilst running and it motivates me when running as part of a group on those cold winter nights.
