WHEN HER SUPPORT TEAM LET HER DOWN AT THE WILMSLOW FESTIVE 10K, BERNIE RYAN WAS DETERMINED NOT TO LET IT DASH HER PB HOPES…
Spot the runners who had a gin the night before

Wilmslow is around 10 miles south of Manchester, situated at the top right-hand side of the county of Cheshire. This was our first time running the Wilmslow Festive 10K, organised by Run North West. We chose the race because it’s predominantly flat and can deliver PB times and because my husband, Mike, and I decided we needed a goal to keep us training over winter.

We had both been training frequently, starting with 5K runs, building up to 15K, with parkrun a regular fixture on our weekly training plan. Knocking down my parkrun times each week, getting gradually closer to the promise of a sub-30-minute time, I was hopeful for a sub-60 finish, especially given the hilly terrain of my local parkrun (Woodbank) by comparison to the flat course profile in Wilmslow.

About Women’s Running

We all take up running for different reasons – to improve our health, lose a few pounds, raise money for charity, or perhaps because we drunkenly made a pact with a friend. But, whatever the reason, we all share the benefits of what running can deliver: inner strength, fearlessness, fitness, self-belief, self-esteem - the effects are countless. You only have to read this month’s cover star Viv’s incredible story to hear the effects of running. After undergoing a double mastectomy following a breast cancer diagnosis, Viv made the courageous decision not to have reconstructive surgery – a decision directly influenced by taking up running and the newfound body confidence this gave her. As we move into the New Year, confidence is going to be key to ensuring we reach our goals, whether that’s taking up running for the first time, upping our distance or losing weight (you can find plans for all three on page 32). Now is the time to harness self-belief and, to help you do so, we’ve got tips for you from life coach Steve Chamberlain. When you let go of limiting beliefs, you’ll be surpised how far it can take you, after all, as Chamberlian says, “beliefs are just thoughts we buy into, so it’s important we choose wisely!”
